MAY 14 AAPS BUDGET MEETING AT HURON
Mon, May 14, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Huron Cafeteria
The AAPS Board of Education is now reviewing the budget plan that was presented at the April 25th meeting. The district is facing approximately $17 million in reductions for the 2012/2013 school year. After over $50 million in cuts in the past few years, the decisions of where to make further reductions are very hard and painful. We invite the community to attend a budget forum to review the proposed plan and add your input and advice. You can see the proposed plan at the AAPS website. http://a2schools.org MAY 14 ALL NIGHT GRADUATION PARTY COMMITTEE MEETING IN CDR (NEAR MAIN OFFICE), 7:00 P.M.
