Voting Information for School Budget

posted Jun 9, 2017, 9:05 AM by Roz Walton   [ updated Jul 20, 2017, 9:19 AM ]

The School Budget Referendum date is June 13th

    At the voting location for your ward, 7:00 am-8:00 pm

    Informational flyers are in the mail today for Auburn residents.  

    Please mark your calendars and vote!

         Important Facts About This Budget:

The City Council voted to support a $41,755,455 school budget, which is a 2.48% increase over last year’s budget.


The City Manager’s proposed mill rate is $23.55. Education accounts for $9.55 of the $23.55 proposed mill rate.


 If the School Department receives additional funds from the State following the referendum vote, 100% of those
funds will be used to reduce the mil rate.


The School Committee’s proposed budget maintains current staffing and programming. It also includes additional
items that the School Committee considered most necessary.


 Below is a list of those additions:

Title I Teacher position moved to General Funds due to a decrease in federal funds

Title II Teacher position moved to General Funds due to a decrease in federal funds

.5 ELPM (credit recovery) Teacher position moved to General Funds due to decrease in federal funds

New Elementary Teacher Position

New Special Education Teacher Position

New Educational Technician III to support Behavior Interventions for students in the classroom


This budget does meet Essential Program and Service (EPS) local commitment required by law.
