The Fixed Costs/Contractual Obligations Budget 

The Board of Education reviewed the "Fixed Costs/Contractual Obligations Budget." This budget provides a detailed consideration of the fixed cost increases to salaries, health insurance, and vendor contracts. 

Note: This is not the final, adopted budget. The Board will continue to review this budget, a "Special Request" budget, and the "Initial Budget Proposal" before adopting a budget to forward to the Board of Finance.

The Special Requests Budget

The Board of Education reviewed the Special Requests budget. This budget iteration presents special improvement requests; naturally, the overall budgetary numbers increase as a result.

The purpose of this exercise is to provide the Board, and by extension the Griswold community, with a context and an understanding of how reasonable requests impact our budget.  Once again:  This is not the final, approved budget that the Board of Education puts forward to the Town of Griswold, Board of Finance.

Initial Budget Proposal

The Board of Education reviewed the Initial Budget Proposal at a Special Meeting on March 2nd, 2023. The Initial Budget Proposal captures our best thinking, at this point and time. As you will see in the presentation below, there were a number of considerations and data points analyzed and reviewed. The Board will continue to review this proposal over the coming weeks and could adjust this budget before adopting a budget to forward to the town. Next up:  The Public Hearing on March 6th, 2023.
