Thrifty superintendent saves school programs

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 18, 2007 12:42 PM


Chris Augusta-Scott, superintendent of Norfolk's elementary school system, announced last week that the schools would be able to restore cuts made last year to the Spanish and health programs.

Augusta-Scott said the schools would also be able to return to the town $30,000, which officials had added to the school budget to prevent the district from charging a transportation fee to some students.

Augusta-Scott said the schools were able to save the money through better management of resources. "We are able to do more with less," she said. "Norfolk's getting a pretty good bang for their buck."
