Adams-Cheshire Schools Face Further Budget Dilemmas
The Adams-Cheshire Regional School Committee in Massachusetts will deliberate tonight how to keep all three of its school buildings open and add new positions – after failing twice before to approve its budget.
The Adams-Cheshire Regional School Committee has failed twice to approve next year’s budget.
There are a few dilemmas the school district faces: It wants to hire more people, like a secretary and art teacher for the high school; and it wants to keep open its school buildings – despite talks to close the Cheshire Elementary School, which would save the district about $100,000.
The Berkshire Eagle reports the current plan is about $7 million less than the original $19.9 million budget plan.
