It is no surprise to those who have been following the Norwalk Public School system's latest revelations regarding the CREC report on Special Education needs, as well as the necessity of removing salaries from grant funds, that a rather sizable amount of dollars will be needed for the next budget. The Chairperson for the Board of Education is asking for a 3.9% increase in funding. Readers, that's a major increase. Does anyone remember an increase of that magnitude EVER?
What do you think about 3.9%?
