CLAREMONT — The Claremont School Board discussed $1.2 million in proposed cuts at its meeting Wednesday.
Board members had sparred with SAU 6 Superintendent Middleton McGoodwin at the Nov. 15 meeting at which McGoodwin presented the proposed 2018-19 budget with a $1.7 million increase over the current year when the board had asked to see $1.2 million in cuts from the current year.
In a lengthy meeting Wednesday night McGoodwin presented board members with the budget side-by-side with the proposed spending of his originally proposed budget and board members went through each line item to ask questions about the cuts.
One of the proposed cuts was $1 million in the technology budget, including the replacement of technology five years or older, including projectors and computers. *| More at Union Leader.com
