Do you know what Southington schools are looking for in an $86.45 million budget request for the 2013-14 school year?
Southington schools on Monday released a PDF version of the School Superintendent Joseph V. Erardi Jr.'s proposed budget for public use. The document includes a line-by-line look at each item, as well as an introduction and summary to make it easier to understand the request.
The proposal, which calls for a 4.87 percent increase, is the largest request over the last five years and aims to address growing state mandates while maintaining other services the town already provides.
