LWV First Friday Forum Takes on School Budgets
Want to know what drives the school budget? The League of Women Voters of Lexington attempt to answer that question in its First Friday forum Oct. 7 at Cary Memorial Library.
The following is a press release from the League of Women Voters of Lexington.
Most taxpayers are well aware that spending for schools is the largest item in the Town of Lexington's budget. The League of Women Voters of Lexington's First Friday Forum on Oct. 7 will focus on some of the elements that drive the school budget.
Panelists Thomas Plati, director of educational technology and assessment; Linda Chase, director of student services, and Patrick Goddard, director of public facilities, will talk about the importance of their departments and demands on the overall school budget. Barbara Manfredi, former principal of Bridge School, will introduce the panel and moderate the meeting.
This is the first in a series of 2011-2012 First Friday Forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Lexington to promote awareness and understanding of public policy issues.
Coffee will be available at 9:15 a.m. and presentations will begin at 9:30 in the Community Meeting Room on the lower level of Cary Memorial Library, 1874 Massachusetts Avenue. The library is easily accessible by Lexpress and from the Minuteman Bikeway. For more information or to carpool, contact the League at 781-862-6435. All League forums are open to the public at no charge.
