Board of Ed. proposes $1.6m savings

0
NAUGATUCK — After spending more than two hours behind closed doors Monday night at City Hill Middle School, the Board of Education emerged with a cost-saving plan it hopes will make up all but $372,000 of a more-than-$2 million budget deficit and prevent layoffs during the current school year. The problem is the Naugatuck Teachers’ League won’t entertain the proposal until the board puts to public vote a concession package approved by the NTL Nov. 24.

BOE meeting canceled; rally goes on

0
NAUGATUCK — The meeting was canceled, but the rally went on. Hours before the Board of Education was scheduled to convene Monday, in an attempt to reconcile its more than $2 million budget shortfall, the school system’s governing body called off the gathering. But that didn’t stop the more than 100 people who planned a demonstration outside Tuttle House from picketing and chanting anyway. A new community group that calls itself Our Kids Come First organized the rally in protest of a last-resort cost-savings plan proposed last week by Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Tindall-Gibson. The sweeping measure, which would save an estimated $2.26 million, includes cuts to K-8 music, K-6 physical education, K-8 art and freshman sports. Both Tindall-Gibson and members of the board have said they aim to avoid these programming rollbacks.
