The King Philip School Committee approved a budget increase, citing increased costs and a rise in enrollment, but they don't expect towns to absorb the increases.
The King Philip School Committee approved superintendent Elizabeth Zielinski’s recommended budget for the fiscal year 2014 Monday. The recommendations are a 2.5 percent over a level services budget, which would itself be 8.1 percent higher than 2013’s budget. The entire recommended budget is $28.1 million, which would include the level services budget, be 10.6 percent higher than last year’s budget. A level services budget would be $27.5 million. School committee chair Patrick Francomano said that the committee has no illusions about the probability of the recommendations. “I think there is certainly the understanding that approval of this budget as presented by the superintendent is for all practical purposes a placeholder,” he said. “…

The King Philip School Committee discussed state budget issues with State Sen. Richard Ross and State Rep. Daniel Winslow on Monday night and how the state fiscal landscape could affect the schools. The short version? It’s too early to tell. “We’re just one weekend into session of this two year thing, our legislations not due until Jan, 18 in the house and nobody knows what the budget seems like yet,” said Winslow. “We just need to see what [quarter 1] looks like in 2013 to see how the budget process will shape up.” Ross said there has not been much support for cutting aide to schools or local aid.
