Appleton voters OK trimmed school budget

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

APPLETON, Maine — A trimmed Appleton school budget gained voter approval Tuesday.

Voters enacted the $1.12 million budget for 2014-15 by a 193-104 tally, according to School Union 69 Superintendent Nancy Weed.

The budget approved Tuesday was about $53,000 less than the $1.18 million package rejected at the polls on June 10. The Appleton School Committee trimmed the budget after the rejection, reducing the increase from the 2013-14 budget to $51,580.

The superintendent said that among the changes from the budget rejected in June were cuts in such areas as Spanish, guidance and music. Spanish for example will be reduced from four days per week to three.

The Appleton School serves 141 students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
