Rally/hearing on school district budget
The public hearing is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. on May 6 in the Doyle Middle School auditorium.
On April 1, the Board of Education unanimously adopted the budget, which included plans to remove a total 62.8 fulltime equivalent positions by the end of June to balance the district's finances.
In addition, members of the Troy Teacher's Association will hold a rally outside of the auditorium beginning at 5:30 p.m, according to TTA President Seth Cohen.
"The idea is that it’s not a protest, but it’s for support of the 50-odd members of our association that have been laid off," said Cohen.
Residents will vote on whether to approve the proposed budget on May 19.
