On June 10th, the Barre City Elementary & Middle School budget was narrowly defeated by twenty votes. The fourth try at passing a budget for the school is scheduled for Monday, June 30th at the Barre Auditorium.
Before the revote, however, the BCEMS School Board has scheduled an Informational Forum for voters to learn about the budget proposal: Monday, June 23rd at 7pm at the BCEMS Library. Voters are encouraged to attend this meeting to get the details on the proposed budget, which will cut just under $175,000 from the June 10th budget proposal.
Barre Friends of Education is a growing network of parents, educators, and community members committed to ensuring quality education and fiscal responsibility in the publicly-funded Barre area schools. We do this by educating the electorate about the challenges and the opportunities of proposed school budgets and getting out the vote when it’s time to head to the polls.
To get up-to-date information on budget proposals and help mobilize and organize the effort to “get out the vote,” please stay connected to Barre Friends of Education. Visit www.barrefriendsofeducation.org where you can sign up to become a “Friend” to show your support or add your name to an electronic listserv (link found on our website) to receive alerts and information. We also have a presence on Facebook at Barre Friends of Education.
