Council hears the budget: Round 3 tonight at 5!

If you are able, please consider joining us at City Council tonight at 5 pm as they hear the Worcester Public Schools portion of their budget. Both WPS and Economic Development were held last week to this, after some positive-sounding comments from councilors regarding reaching foundation this year.

Whether or not you can make it this evening, I would urge you (as always) to reach out to the City Council (whose contact information can be found at the right->>>>) regarding the city thus far failing to meet the minimum legal obligation we have for funding the Worcester Public Schools.
As a reminder:

  • Worcester is $427,000 under the legal minimum
  • This puts us in the bottom 2% statewide when it comes to state funding of education
  • The statewide average is 14% over the legal minimum
