Please join us for this important discussion.

Board Reflects on Governor Scott's Proposal of Level Funding for Education
Burlington, Vermont —On January 24th,Governor Scott released a proposed budget plan that included level-funding school budgets for 2017-18. Should the Governor's proposal be adopted by the legislature, it would result in a $3.2M reduction to the budget the Burlington School Board has approved for the Town Meeting Day ballot.
Governor Scott's proposal comes at the tail end of a budget process that has taken Burlington residents and District staff months to complete. The Board is grateful for the thoughtful work that created a budget addressing key needs, and the Board hopes that the community will support that budget.
However, the Burlington School Board and District believe it is prudent and responsible to prepare for various possibilities. District staff are prepared so that the Board is in a position to respond to whatever directives may come from the legislature.
The Board shares the Governor's commitment to education quality and affordability. The Board's recent work on fiscal discipline and strategic planning are a testament to that commitment. The Board and local legislators will shortly announce an invitation to community members to strategize around advocacy and funding opportunities in support of our students.
