Sound Off On Proposed Teacher Layoffs, Budget At Tonight's Hearing
How do you feel about proposals to cut 37 positions in the Malden School District? Residents can attend a public hearing on the budget at city hall tonight.
Want to weigh in on the Malden Public School budget for the next fiscal year?
The district will hold public hearings at 6 p.m. Monday night in the council chambers on the third floor of Government Center, inviting public input on a proposed plan to cut 37 positions to fill a $1.5 million deficit in the $56 million budget.
Most of the cuts focus on the high school in an effort to avoid hitting staff at the K-8 level, which faces a “baby boom” of students, Superintendent David DeRuosi said.
The school board will vote on the budget at their June 25 meeting next week.
Another hearing about the proposed adoption of Linden School Innovation Plan will also be held in the council chambers immediately following budget discussions.
