School chief agrees to salary cut in exchange for all day Kindergarten

After a few budget referendum defeats, in order to find money in the budget for all day kindergarten, Newtown's interim superintendent of schools has agreed to a smaller salary.  The Board of Education met Tuesday night about the budget. 


The Newstimes reports that John Reed will receive nearly $50,000 less than originally planned do the district can start the program in the elementary schools. 


Easing some of the budget problems, Newtown has received federal and state funding to build a new school and is applying for grant money to hire additional police officers.
