School Board Notes and Agenda

11/9
Budget season is back! In October the SAU Board approved a flat budget for 2018-2019 that will, among other things, make improvements to the district computer network without increasing the overall tax burden on district towns. Now it’s the Deerfield Board’s turn to build a budget for 2018-2019.

The Administration has been working on all of the pieces of next year’s proposed budget and our meeting last week was the first time that they were all put together and seen in their entirety. The Board and Administration agreed that as a first draft, this budget proposal has a larger increase than we would like to see. With significant budgetary increases due to such costs as Special Education changes and new choices in staff benefits, it was pointed out at the meeting that difficult choices may be required this year to keep the budget reasonable. We will be meeting twice each month through the winter to work on this.

The Board was also presented with preliminary results from the engineering study of DCS by a representative of CMK Architects. The study has turned up many updates that the district will need to address in the foreseeable future, but CMK will be prioritizing them into 5-, 10-, and 15-year subsets. We anticipate working the updates into future budgets as possible.

Bus Routes 11/2/17

posted Nov 2, 2017, 2:18 AM by Debbie Boisvert

Meetinghouse Hill Road is now open and normal bus routes will resume

Bus routes will remain the same as yesterday unless a family has been contacted by the bus driver

Red, Pink, Blue and Green bus routes are unaffected and will pick up students at their normal stops.

White, Purple and Orange buses are affected and will be altered as follows:
- Orange bus will travel from the Meetinghouse end of Mt. Delight and can only travel up to Swamp Rd. Parents from further on can either come up Swamp Rd. for pickup or drive their students in to school.
- Purple bus riders from Cole Rd. students will have to come down Cole Rd. to 107 or to the intersection of Candia, Cole and Ridge.
- White bus bus will do its route in reverse, but it can only go as far as Hartford Brook. The bus can't travel Candia Rd. The dirt section of Middle Rd. will need to go to route 43 to be picked up.

The parents of specialized transport students will be contacted individually by Dail transportation with details of alterations of their routes.

Thank you for your patience as we work through these transportation issues.

There will be school today Wednesday, November 1st.
