The budget goes through a process as it is created. It is important that the many legislators who help to write the budget are made aware of the issues faced by Wachusett and other regional school districts and what they can do to help.
Just ask them to please support ALL of the many students who attend regional school districts in Massachusetts in the FY20 budget by
1. Fully funding regional school district transportation at 100% , and
2. Fully funding Circuit Breaker reimbursement for special education at 75% .
These two things would benefit all regional school districts and relieve some of the burden put onto the sending towns.
Please call the leaders of the HOUSE WAYS & MEANS COMMITTEE while they work on the budget.
Please make these calls by 3/25/19.

Denise Garlick – Vice Chair, House Ways & Means – 617-722-2810
