OVERVIEW OF THE SIMSBURY PUBLIC SCHOOLS BUDGET PROCESS
Each year it becomes more challenging to maintain the current level of support and services. Some of the areas driving our costs include increased pension contributions, rising health insurance premiums and contractual wage increases. There will be multiple opportunities to participate in the Board of Education’s budget process, which will begin in January. This website is designed to allow you to better understand the current status of the budget development process and the factors impacting the Board of Education budget.
