Superintendent Clarifies Budget Considerations from Monday Night

| No Comments

Metuchen Matters just got a call from Terri Sinatra and the Board business administrator, Michael Havier, with some clarifications about the issues discussed for both next year and the 2011-12 school year during the Superintendant's announcementts about budget cuts on Monday night. They include:

FRESHMAN COACHES: If a team does not have a full roster of interested students signed up to play, the team will not play and the coach that was assigned to that team will not be put on payroll. At present, those coaches are assigned to assistant positions for Varsity teams.

WORLD LANGUAGES: Next year the three offered world languages will stay as assigned now. However, in the 2011-2012 school year, there may be fewer offered.

CO-CURRICULAR CLUBS: Not all co-curriculars will be eliminated. Those decisions will be made at the end of this year for the 2011-2012 school year.

$600K EMERGENCY FUND: These monies have been collected over the past years and they will continue to be held in an account for emergency purposes only. They are not part of the monies involved in the next two years' budget decisions.

We thank the Superintendant and the business administrator for taking the time to clarify these issues for our readers today. Metuchen Matters will continue to update on the budget deliberations as they go on before the election in April.
