Sparse crowd sends $18m Souhegan district budget to voters
Few residents spoke at the school deliberative session, where voters were presented with a recommended budget increase of less than 1 percent.
The budget includes a reduction of 2.5 full-time teachers and 1 paraprofessional, said Coughlan.
Enrollment projections for next year hover around 839 students, according to school officials.
However, after the increase next year, enrollment projections begin to decline in fiscal year 2016 to about 812 students, and even further in fiscal year 2017 to 783 students.
If the proposed $18 million budget is rejected, the default budget of $17,864,643 will be authorized.
