Why is Our Budget Increasing? These are not enrollment driven: – State mandates (special education, magnet schools, testing, curriculum, teacher evaluation) – Salaries (Colchester remains near the bottom of our DRG) – Health Insurance (nationally increasing) – Fixing and maintaining our buildings – Demands of technology – Community Expectations for Success 32

Community Expectations for Success are Not Enrollment Driven • CMT Scores Demonstrate WJJMS is an Excelling School. • BA Named to AP Honor Roll • Students from JJIS performed at the HOT School 2013 Summer Institute • Collaboration for Colchester’s Children (C3) has identified strong K growth in reading over time– the result of improved Preschool opportunities and full day kindergarten. 33
