LaGrange: MSAD 41 Special Board Meeting

January 10, 2010 - TRC - By Don Crossman, Chairman, MSAD 41 Board of Directors

Marion C. Cook School, Lagrange
On January 20 at 6:00pm there will be an MSAD# 41 Special Board Meeting in LaGrange. The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the financial outlook for school funding for the 2010/2011 budget. In light of the anticipated large decrease in funding to our district the future of the Marion C. Cook School will be discussed.

Due to a combination of factors it is estimated that we will be looking to make up for a $497,000 difference in next year’s budget compared to this year’s budget. These are dollars that will have to be made up locally instead of coming from another source. An explanation of these reductions will discussed that evening.

The Board has made no decisions but feels that the Cook School should be “on the table” for discussion. Hence, the meeting on Wednesday, January 20th at 6:00 pm at the LaGrange School.

All those who want to learn more or who wish to take part in the discussion are encouraged to attend.
