Dear WMTPS Community,
Last night at the Board of Education meeting, the Board approved the 2020-2021 school budget. Due to a large reduction ($1,972,723) in State Aid, our total budget decreased by 0.28% and our general fund decreased by 0.38%. The budget is responsive to the dynamic needs of our District and is significantly under the State and Regional limits for administrative spending. Compared to our Regional (north New Jersey) peers, approximately $1,000,000 extra was appropriated towards classroom spending. The entire presentation can be found on our website.
The Board also approved a change to the 2019-2020 school calendar last night. Due to four (4) unused snow days, the end of the school year has been moved up by four (4) days. The new calendar is summarized here:
- All schools will have early dismissal on June 17, 18, 19
- Thursday, June 18: Macopin Promotion 7:00p.m.
- Friday, June 19: Last Day for Students and Staff
- Friday, June 19: WMHS Graduation 6:45p.m.
Please note that the graduation activities are subject to Governor Murphy reopening the buildings. In the event that does not happen, we will communicate alternative plans to our families.
Alex Anemone, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
