Norfolk OKs King Philip School District Budget Request

After the Norfolk School Committee approved the King Philip School District budget, it will now be up to Wrentham and Plainville to decide the budget's fate.


Norfolk said yes and now it will be up to Wrentham and Plainville to improve an increase in the school funding for the King Philip School District

At Tuesday's annual town meeting, Norfolk voters approved $525,472 or eight-percent increase, according to a report in the Sun Chronicle. 



"The community came out and spoke," Superintendent Elizabeth Zielinski said in the Sun Chronicle. "The school committee listened to the community."

If the increase isn't approved, the King Philip School District was preparing to cut boys' ice hockey, golf, cheerleading, gymnastics, wrestling and turn the athletic director's position into a part-time job. 

The King Philip School District is requesting an additional $841,293 or 3.3-percent increase.
