The New Milford Board of Education has made $400,000 in cuts for the coming year, to meet the budget amount approved by voters.  New administrators will have lower salaries, a custodian position was eliminated and a plan to replace copiers was put off.  Consulting fees and projected savings in other areas also made up some of the difference.  Chromebook purchases will be made from the capital reserve instead of the operating budget.  The music program, which was previously cut was cited by some members as what should be saved--instead of hiring another assistant principal at Sarah Noble.  Those in favor of the position say it's a big school and needed for safety reasons.  The Board voted to keep band, athletic buses, the gifted program and practical arts.
