2017-18 Operating Budget Request
Posted on 01/13/2017
The Superintendent's recommended budget for the 2017-2018 School Year has been presented to the Board of Education, which votes on the proposal at its business meeting on January 17, 2017.
As expected, the budget request presents both challenges and the promise of continued improvement for Norwalk schools. The recommended budget is designed to make further headway in closing both the external achievement gap between Norwalk student achievement and State average student achievement, and the internal achievement gap of Norwalk's high need students. At the same time, an unprecedented increase in health insurance cost will need to be addressed if we are to continue supporting education programs that "raise the bar and close the gap."
