  • Crossing guard and nursing (municipal budget): $39,000

aThe TBA notation reflects that a person leaving a position that was eliminated with the reconfiguration to 2 1/2 schools would have been replaced by someone "to be announced" (TBA) at an estimated salary, as shown.

bThis notation indicates that the savings or expense was not identified during the time leading up to development of the FY09 budget during the winter and spring of 2008.

cThe elementary reconfiguration savings amount identified during the winter and spring of 2008 was $400,605.

The transportation cost difference will not be known until the end of the school year. At present, the schools have one additional noon Kindergarten run above what was in place last year.

Summer moving expenses and other non-personnel expenses have also not been estimated yet.

The Committee will update this analysis as additional information becomes available.
