BAC recommends school district divest itself of Milford Main

Here are the highlights from the 8/15/13 school board meeting:

  • The Business Advisory Council (BAC) presented their findings re: Milford Main.  Click here for the article.
  • The board approved appropriations for Fiscal Year 2014 (July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014).  The state’s budget is not yet finalized, and the funding formula has not been finished.  Once we know our final funding, we will update appropriations.  However, it was important to have a budget to work from for the year, and expenditures are extremely conservative.
  • The calendar has changed slightly.  What affects families is that Friday, September 20 has been changed to a Waiver Day (no school for students).
  • The turf is almost ready to go!  While it may seem to the naked eye that progress has been slow, the turf installation company has actually been working steadily.  The process was delayed a bit due to the extremely wet weather, but the turf should be ready for the first game on Saturday, August 31!  The first varsity game and “ribbon cutting” will be held on Friday, September 6.  Thank you again to the Athletic Boosters for all their hard work in making this happen at no installation cost to the district!  For more information on the turf and the Athletic Boosters’ generous support, click here.
