Lowell School Committee allocates $3.6 million in state funding, restoring jobs

LOWELL — In recent years, budget decisions at Lowell Public Schools have often meant cuts. However, this Wednesday it was all about additions.

School Committee members approved a plan presented by Superintendent Joel Boyd and other administrators to use the $3.6 million in state funding over the amount budgeted by the district this spring to provide flexible funding for schools and create, or reinstate, over 20 positions.

The extra dollars are thanks to a state budget with the biggest ever amount allocated to public education, boosting the budget for Lowell Public Schools to $192.5 million, about $12 million over last year.

The School Committee near-unanimously supported the plan with only School Committee member Jackie Doherty voting against, arguing the hires should be focused on “front-line” classroom supports instead of administrators.

Boyd said while the extra funding will not fill all of the district’s needs, it moves the district toward a set of goals mapped out by the current administration, particularly regarding equity in education.

In what way do you think the Fed is being fair / unfair re:AIG 'emergency funding'?


Fair, not unfair
Had they not stepped in to prop up AIG there would have been devastating negative consequences in the international capital markets. AIG insured many mortgages which are in default.
