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reflects that a person leaving a position that was eliminated with the reconfiguration to 2 1/2 schools would have been replaced by someone "to be announced" (TBA) at an estimated salary, as shown.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

cOne additional noon Kindergarten run was added to accommodate the reconfiguration.

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

There may be additional minor non-personnel expenses, but the Committee does not expect these to have a significant impact on the total above.
