Kirsi Allison-Ampe, chair of the School Committee's budget subcommittee, invites parents and community members to budget information sessions.
Learn about the budgeting process for the Arlington Public Schools, the outlook for next year's budget and ask questions or suggest priorities.
A School Committee member will give a brief presentation at each session and bring comments back to the full Committee. Parents and community members are welcome to attend sessions at other schools, not just their own. Those involved appreciate the generosity of our host PTOs. The meetings are set for:
Ottoson, Wednesday, Feb. 7, 8 a.m.
Bishop, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 8:15 a.m.
Peirce, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 6:30 p.m.
Thompson, Wednesday, March 14, 7 p.m.
Also planned is a session at Arlington High School, in the sixth-floor School Committee room on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. As with the others, this session will be open to everyone.
