Merrimack School board unveils its $68.7M proposal
The Merrimack School Board has been presented with the administrator’s recommended budget of $68,728,290, which represents a 2.63 percent increase over the existing budget of nearly $67 million.
“The administration remains committed to not only maintaining a low student-teacher ratio, but also ensuring equity in the student-teacher ratios across grade levels among the three elementary schools,” Superintendent Marjorie Chiafery said in a recent budget memo to the school board.
Enrollment is expected to decrease at all but one school within the district. James Mastricola Upper Elementary School may see an increase from 598 students to about 603 students in the next year, according to recent data.
Proposed capital improvement projects include $211,000 for asbestos abatement at James Mastricola Upper Elementary School; $750,073 to replace a portion of the roof at Merrimack High School; and a $190,595 new air-cooled chiller component for the high school roof.
