Burlington School District looks at upcoming budget
The Burlington School District says it's facing "tremendous uncertainty" on the financial impacts of having to close schools and activities due to the coronavirus, but they say they're expecting a significant financial hit next school year.
Members of the board say they're working to preserve as much financial flexibility as possible.
They say the state education fund is facing a projected $150 million deficit in the 2021 fiscal year.
This projection is likely to change multiple times, but the board says the current projections would result in a property tax rate increase of 22 cents to 23 cents above Town Meeting Day projections.
That would equate to an increase of 22% for people in Burlington.
