EPPING - Voters will debate a $17.3 million school budget, a plan to replace playground equipment and raises for paraprofessionals at the annual school deliberative session set for Thursday.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the middle school gymnasium.
Among the spending proposals up for discussion is a school budget totaling $17,307,303. It would be lowered to $17,172,303 if voters support the default budget.
A proposed contract for paraprofessionals seeks an additional $36,578 in the 2013-14 school year and $35,705 in 2014-2015 to cover pay raises and benefit increases.
Voters will also consider a proposal to spend $181,246 to install new playground equipment at the elementary school. The entire cost would be covered through impact fees.
