School Budget Workshops Feb 25: Come with your questions & ideas

Ridgewood Public Schools has announced Community Budget Workshops to be held February 25. The purpose is to give parents, community members and taxpayers (aka everyone) the opportunity to:
* Learn how the district's budget is created
* Understand how budget decisions are made
* Find out about state laws and regulations that impact the budget
* Ask questions about the budget
* Make suggestions for meeting budget challenges

The Workshops will be hosted by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Daniel Fishbein, along with Board of Education members.

Two sessions: Thursday, February 25, at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
(Each session will be virtually identical -- we're offering two options in order to work with everyone's different schedules.)

Location: The Board Room at the Education Center, 49 Cottage Place -- 3rd floor

For more information, post a question here or call the Office of the Superintendent at 201-670-2700, ext. 10530

You can also send questions or suggestions for the budget to budget11@ridgewood.k12.nj.us. All emails will be responded to ASAP!

Mark your calendar now and remember to vote: the Annual School Election and Budget Vote is Tuesday, April 20.
