Dover-Sherborn trims budget request

Posted by Martin Finucane March 9, 2007 09:40 AM


The Dover-Sherborn Regional District School Committee trimmed its fiscal year 2008 budget at a recent meeting, removing several proposed new positions, including a special education teacher.

The committee reduced its request by $200,000, according to committee chairman Ellen Williamson. The committee also decided to forgo new health aide and administrative positions.

The committee also approved smaller reductions to budget line items for facilities maintenance, supplies, athletics and activities. The final budget is roughly $18 million, Williamson said.
