When the Town Council voted to adopt the 2019-20 Enfield school budget on May 20, the state had not yet adopted its budget.
The town adopted a school budget of $71,290,125, which included estimated Education Cost Sharing of $28,768,258. The state increased funding by $401,741.
At its Sept. 3 meeting, the council voted unanimously to increase the school board’s budget by $401,741 to $71,691,866.
Mayor Michael Ludwick noted that the additional funds are coming from the state, and the town is passing it along. Ludwick said the additional funding comes at no cost to the town.
