HPS Budget Information for School Year (SY) 21-22
The Assistant Superintendent of Business sent. this communication out last week. If you didn’t receive it I have copied it here for you.
Good Afternoon Haverhill Students, Families and Faculty, We hope you have enjoyed your winter break and we look forward to resuming our teaching & learning next week. We have been busy working on the School Year 2021-2022 budget over the past couple of months. Over the next few months, we will formulate the budget and present it to the community, staff and school committee.
Please take a few minutes to watch this brief video on the SY21-22 budget process and also take a moment to complete a 3 question survey on the budget. It is important to have your feedback on your perceived priorities for next year’s budget and education.
