This message comes from our school committee chairman, Michael A. Traficante, and the school committee clerk, Andrea Iannazzi. Some have probably already received it from their PTO listserv, but in case you missed it:
Due to the school department’s budget crisis, the members of the Cranston School Committee and school administration have set aside two dates to brief all PTO and individual parents on the proposed school budget for 2008-2009 prior to presenting it to the Cranston City Council on Tuesday, April 22, 2008, at 6:30 p.m. at Cranston East.
The purpose of the budget briefings is not only to educate your membership and individual parents on the proposed budget but also, of equal importance, to hopefully gain your support and encourage your presence on April 22nd when the budget is discussed before the Cranston City Council.
The first budget briefing will take place in the Cranston High School East Auditorium on Tuesday, April 8, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. for the following schools:
Adult Education Program
Sanders Academy Program
The second budget briefing will take place in the Cranston High School West Auditorium on Monday, April 21, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. for the following schools:
Your presence at these budget briefings is extremely important, and your support on April 22, 2008 is critical.
Please make every effort to attend. Your child’s quality education is at risk.
If your membership cannot be present at the assigned date and time, you are more than welcome to attend the other scheduled session.
Michael A. Traficante, Chairman
Andrea M. Iannazzi, Clerk
Cranston School Committee
