Part 1 for this meeting can be found here:
Jim Dacey covered the debt and interest explanations. Susan and Jeff combined to discuss the stabilization fund, the calculation of "free cash" and its use for capital expenses (one time, not recurring).
The group took a break and then resumed to pick up with the School budget.
Maureen Sabolinski and Miriam Goodman presented the initial overview on the budget and Federal/State mandates.
Sally Winslow and Beth Fitzmaurice are now covering Special Education and its requirements.
I am taking good notes but will spend some time to write them up before sharing them here.
Franklin belongs to two collaboratives to provide enhanced purchasing options to provide special education requirements at a reasonable expense.
