Finance committee approves $40.275 million in funding for Bristol Warren schools

Posted

In a historic "virtual" meeting closed to the public but live-streamed over the Internet, the Bristol Warren Joint Finance Committee on Wednesday night unanimously approved $40.275 million in local aid to the Bristol Warren Regional School District for the 2020-21 school year. Warren's increase over last year is $524,134; Bristol's bill rises $730,820.

The approved budget is $300,000 less than school officials asked for, but that request is essentially fully funded as insurance expenses will cost the district approximately $300,000 less than originally estimated.

More details to follow.
