Budget Story:

  • No new programs or initiatives, and no staffing cuts

  • Ensure that academics and learning is not further impacted as we recover from the pandemic

  • The mental health of our students and staff is a critical priority 

  • Capital item toward athletic field needs: Design, Engineering, Permitting for Turf Field Project

Masconomet’s FY24 Operating Budget Assessment to member towns saw an increase of 5.1% over FY23.  Both the Operating Budget Assessment and the Capital Budget Assessments are apportioned to each member town based on minimum local contribution formulas (state), and regional agreement formulas (district). Both formulas are impacted by each town’s enrollment percentage (Boxford: 37.62%, Middleton: 31.10%, Topsfield 29.28%)
