NORWICH – Norwich’s top administrators are shooting to have a tentative budget approved by the school district’s board of education in less than two weeks.
“I believe we’ll hit our target and adopt the budget on April 4,” said Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan.
That leaves just one more budget session for the board to continue its review of the draft spending plan. Since mid-February, the district’s governing body has been reviewing the document one chunk at a time. The process began on Feb. 14, when O’Sullivan and Deputy Superintendent Rob Wightman presented the revenue side of the budget. On March 14, they concentrated on the administrative, board of education, transportation and BOCES portions of the spending plan. The conversation will continue Monday as the board examines the final portion of the document.
