BOARD OF EDUCATION TO HOLD TWO PUBLIC HEARINGS ON SUPERINTENDENT GEORGE ARLOTTO’S RECOMMENDED FY2016 BUDGETS

The Board of Education will hold two public hearings on Superintendent George Arlotto’s recommended Fiscal Year 2016 Operating and Capital budgets this week.

Public hearings will be held on Tuesday, January 6, 2015, at Old Mill High School, and Thursday, January 8, 2015, in the Board Room at the Parham Building in Annapolis. Both hearings begin at 7 p.m. Those wishing to testify can sign up beginning at 6 p.m. Testimony will be limited to three minutes per person.

Details of Dr. Arlotto’s recommended $1.1 billion operating budget and $163.1 million capital budget can be found here.

A public workshop on Dr. Arlotto’s budget recommendations will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, in the Board Room at the Parham Building. The workshop is open to the public, but no testimony will be taken.

The Board is scheduled to approve a budget request to forward to County Executive Steve Schuh in February. The County Executive’s proposal will be considered by the County Council before it adopts a budget that allocates funding within prescribed state categories in June. The Board may shift funding within operating budget categories before it approves a final school system budget no later than June 30.
