Superintendent's Notes

Budget Timelines

At our last school committee meeting a parent suggested that we share the timelines in regard to the budget process.  The School Committee reviews budgetary concerns at almost every meeting. 

The next two school committee meetings will have presentations from the principals, school councils members and curriculum director in regard to the FY18 budget proposal.   These discussions and decisions will be made at the next two school committee meetings on December 1, 2016 and December 15, 2016.

We were also asked to share the Town of Maynard's budget timelines.  The Town Budget Timeline is as follows:

January 3, 2017         
Department Budgets Due to the Town Administrator

Jan - Feb        
Town Administration meets with Department Heads to discus FY18 Budget

February 11, 2017     
FY 18 Joint Budget Meeting (including the Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee, the School Committee, and all Town Administration) at the Maynard Public Library.

Feb - March
Finance Committee meets with each town department (including Police, Fire, DPW, Library, Schools, and General Government)

March 21, 2017
FY18 Budget Document finalized and adopted by Board of Selectmen

All of these meetings are posted and open to the public as well.
