The New Milford Board of Ed has approved nearly $1 million to go toward school reopenings. $750,000 for staffing and $200,000 for materials was approved Tuesday. The Board doesn't hold its next regular meeting until after the school year begins so in order to allow the administrators to have all COVID-related materials they need, lump sum amounts were approved. There was no line item approval at this week's meeting. Some of the items needing to be purchased include ceiling fans, signage, dividers and more tables. The New Milford Board of Ed approved little more than a million dollars in July for the schools emergency needs.
