Bethel Superintendent proposes increased budget due to enrollment hikes

Enrollment increases and the rising cost of health care are being cited for a higher proposed education budget in Bethel.  Superintendent Christine Carver presented a plan that's 4.18 percent more than the current fiscal year.  The $48.4 million budget takes into account two new elementary teachers, an assistant principal, an additional custodian and another bus.  Enrollment in Bethel Schools has gone up by more than 1 percent from last year, and has increased 6.6 percent since the 2015 school year.
