This Wilton Board of Education is holding a special budget workshop this evening to talk about the 4.39 percent budget increase proposed last week by Dr. Gary Richards, superintendent of schools.
As it stands now, the budget proposed for the 2013-2014 school year is $77,300,433, an increase of $3,249,221 from the current operating budget.
According to figures provided by Richards, employees' salaries and benefits make up approximately 80 percent of the budget. A full breakdown of the proposed expenditures is available in a .pdf attached to this article.
The workshop is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. in the professional library at Wilton High School. The Board of Education is then scheduled to vote on the budget at its Feb. 7 regular meeting.
