Ridgefield Board of Ed grappling with projected $1 million deficit

At the Ridgefield Board of Education meeting this week, Superintendent Karen Baldwin reported that he district is expected to end the year with a more than million dollar deficit.  She suggested asking the town to make a one-time appropriation to cover the gap because the district must not end the year in the red.  94.5-percent of the Ridgefield school budget has been spent and a spending freeze on controllable accounts has been implemented.  Another look at the matter will be taken up early next year.  Baldwin previously said special education costs are higher due to families moving into the district after the budget was set.
