On Wednesday, April 5, Ms. Jamonica Warren, the student representative to the Brewster Board of Education and a Senior at Brewster High School, sat down with Mr. Victor Karlsson, Director of Business Services and me to ask a few questions about how the budget is developed. The video that was produced tells the story of how our budget communicates the priorities and values of the District and is based upon the goals of our Strategic Coherence Plan, which describe how we will prepare children to exit the District poised to succeed in life, work and learning. It also illustrates how student needs, shifts in demographics and State and Federal aid affect the overall decisions that are made. If you were not able to attend the last three Board of Education meetings, Mr. Karlsson also created a Podcast that reviews the essential points about what the budget includes.
