Save the Date – January 25, 2018!

Please save the date and time of Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 6:30 PM.

On October 18, 2017 the Massachusetts State Auditor Suzanne Bump issued a report titled “Supporting Student and Community Success: Updating the Structure and Finance of Massachusetts Regional School Districts.” (click to read). The report documents the unique challenges faced by regional schools and their member towns, issues that we have been discussing for many years. While the State Auditor is able to identify and codify the challenges and problems in the funding formula, it is our State Senators and Representatives that are able to enact change that will improve our funding situation.

To that end, we extended an invitation to State Auditor Suzanne Bump as well as our five (5) state legislators that represent the Triton Region School District, to participate in a public discussion on the issues identifed. I am pleased to report that we have confirmed the attendance of Auditor Bump and three of our five State Legislators at this time, with the other two working to attend. This discussion will take place on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 6:30 PM in the high school auditorium. More information will follow after the new year, but I wanted to make sure this date is on calendars so that we can have a strong turn out from our entire community in support of much needed changes in state funding for our member towns and schools.
