Bethel School propose budget for coming fiscal year

The Bethel School Superintendent has proposed a budget for the coming fiscal year with a 3.4 percent increase.  The $46.7 million dollar proposal accounts for a rise in enrollment, reductions in state funding and a new state graduation requirement that all students take a foreign language.  Coupled with the increase in students, is that there are more English-language learners, special eduction students and families eligible for free and reduced price lunch.  Bethel school officials also cited a concern of a lack of stability in state funding.  Budget workshops are scheduled for next week and early February.  A presentation will be made to the Boards of Selectmen and Finance at a February 21st meeting.
