FY20 Budget Hearing Notice

The School Committee strives to meet the needs of all students while also employing sound fiscal management. The 2019-2020 (FY20) Greenfield Public Schools’ budget is in review by the School Committee.

Chapter 70 State Aid to Greenfield is projected to increase by $1.1 million in FY20. The proposed increase to the local budget is $298,426(a 1.6%increase over FY19 local request.)

There are three major factors influencing the FY20 budget: 1) Transportation Costs, 2) Special Education Costs, and 3) Contractual Obligations/Salaries. These fixed costs account for the greatest portion of increases.

A public hearing will be held on February 25th at 6:30PM at John Zon Center, 35 Pleasant Street. Complete copies of the proposed budget with explanation are available at the Superintendent's Office located at 195 Federal Street, Suite 100 and on the school website: www.gpsk12.org.

Respectfully submitted,

Adrienne Núñez, School Committee Chair
