Nashoba proposes $50.5 million budget


School officials have unveiled a proposed $50.5 million level-services budget for the next school year, a 3.7 percent increase over the current one. The increase is slightly lower than last year’s 3.9 percent increase, reflecting the spartan approach to budgeting as compared with pre-recession years, when increases were often 8 percent or more. Rising personnel costs and capital maintenance are the major drivers of the cost hikes, according to Superintendent Michael Wood.
