Dear Franklin Families,


Did you know that Franklin Elementary is expected to LOSE teachers (literacy aides & math interventionists) due to the NPS budget gap? Now's the time to get informed and here is a summary of info:

Newton Public Schools has a $4 million dollar NPS FY23 budget gap - WHAT DOES IT MEAN?- Click here to see a detailed summary of those cuts across NPS. Who makes the budget anyway? How does that work?- Click here for a brief overview of the budget process. WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW? A future override could provide much-needed funding in the long-term, but will not come in time to prevent the cuts to next year’s budget. To prevent cuts for the upcoming year, NPS needs an additional $4M in funding now to close this gap. Contact Mayor Fuller Mayor Fuller needs to hear from her Newton voters who insist our schools be fully funded this year and following years.
