NS panels to huddle on school budget

February 8, 2014

NORTH SMITHFIELD – The signs of town and school officials playing poker with the local education budget grew stronger this week as the Town Council tendered a settlement offer to school officials, who in turn rejected the proposal.

The move left a wide-ranging threat of cuts looming for department employees and programs affecting graduating seniors that by all accounts no one really wants to see enacted as a solution to the School Department’s projected $470,000 deficit for the current fiscal year.

The next hand to be played in the town’s high-stakes education game will be a joint session of the School Committee and the Town Council the two panels have agreed to hold on Monday, beginning at 7 p.m. in the North Smithfield High School auditorium at 412 Greenville Road.
