Important Message from Dr Azar

DESE Budget LetterDear Dighton-Rehoboth Community,

Please see the letter from the Commissioner of Education regarding our budget. As referenced in my recent Roundtable Newsletter, I am sharing this letter with you.

Fortunately, we will not have to reduce any programs or staff for 2020.

Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks, Dr. Azar

Dr. Azar's Official Statement on DESE Letter:
"I believe the letter from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is a win win for our school district and our two towns.  It clearly indicates that the "compromise budget" between the Rehoboth Board of Selectmen and the School Committee was well thought out and did not reduce personnel or town services on the Rehoboth municipality. Nor did it impact school programs or staff in the school district.  The letter further recognizes that Dighton has already supported their assessment.
Therefore, our administration looks forward to continue to work with all stakeholders as we have always done in the past.  Our FY 2021 budget is already in progress and we will follow the directions set forth in the D.E.S.E communication."
Dr. Azar

 School Committee comment by Katherine Cooper:

The School Committee is relieved to have a secure budget in place that supports the educational and extracurricular needs of our students. With a 0.66% budget increase, we believe we have provided students with the best services possible while being fiscally responsible to the member towns.
