With a vote by the Hamilton-Wenham Regional School Committee budget request scheduled for Monday, voters in Hamilton and Wenham may be looking at a Proposition 2 ½ override totaling $1,987,389.
While that may seem like a large sum to seek, the request has the backing of an organized advocacy group. Support Our Schools has been working since last spring to raise community awareness and garner support for school funding, wary of the recent pattern of reductions in Hamilton-Wenham schools.
SOS has sponsored its own meetings and encouraged attendance at others throughout the budget process. "We're committed to getting community support behind it, and to get this override passed,'' said SOS tri-chair Nancy Peterson.
Monday's meeting is at 6 p.m. at the Buker School, School Street, Wenham.
