Bedford voters to decide on $64M spending plan
If the budget and all warrant articles are approved, the total local school tax rate would be 79 cents — 75 cents from the $64,140,242 budget; 3 cents from a $90,834 warrant article for the third year of a three-year contract for secretaries, clerks, teaching assistants and kitchen staff; and 1 cent from a $123,706 warrant article for salary and benefit increases for a new three-year contract for custodial and maintenance staff, which includes increases from 2013-14.
Tim Mayes, school superintendent, said the budget and revenues continue to change and will be updated before the deliberative session.
Other budget items
The proposed budget includes capital improvements:
• Bedford High and Ross A. Lurgio Middle schools: would receive an air-conditioning system for three teacher planning rooms and two special education classrooms for $53,000.
The proposed new programs, estimated to cost $196,000, are for part-time teachers for IB theater, AP statistics, social studies elective, and American Sign Language IV courses at the high school; a part-time Latin teacher for Lurgio; a part-time clerk for McKelvie to support to guidance, nurse and administrators; and an Apple TV and four to five ceiling mounted projectors for each elementary school; voice enhancement systems for two classrooms at Lurgio; two freshmen sports programs for girls volleyball and boys baseball; a Model United Nations Program at the high school; and inventory management software for the district and all schools.
