DESE's FY17 budget priorities

The Board of Ed Budget subcommittee established the following priorities for their FY17 budget:
  • curriculum & instruction/ early literacy
  • educational time & after school programs (to which, on a suggestions from Margaret McKenna, they added 'summer' as well)
  • student well-being: nutrition programs, safety, social-emotional well-being
  • civics education
  • school-to-career connection activities
  • educator development
  • student assessment
  • targeted assistance for schools and district turnaround work
Note that Secretary Peyser recused himself, as these requests then go to his office for discussion before being submitted to Governor Baker in his creation of House 1.
