Millville school’s budget is tight, principal tells community council

MILLVILLE–Principal Maria Nielsen told Millville Elementary School’s Community Council Wednesday morning that money would likely be tighter for the upcoming school year than it was this year. In an administrative meeting Tuesday night, Nielsen found out the district will no longer be providing money to fund retirees’ health insurance, so the state must now give money to compensate retirees. This means that even though the district budget sounds bigger, it isn’t. “It looks like we’re in the hole,” Nielsen said. Nielsen said the school is still expecting some funding from the state school trust lands. She presented a rough draft of the submission application to the council and suggested that at the next meeting they write thank you letters to state officials who make it possible for the school to receive the funding.
