I've just started this page as a way to collect information on costs related to the MTRSD. It is in its infancy, but information will be added to help us understand the financial impact of the district agreement and the way the state allocates funds.
Disclaimer: This blog will reflect my views only, not the Heath Select Board, the School Committee members, the Finance Committee, nor Ken Rocke. Ken, as a concerned resident of Heath and in no way in any official capacity, has put in an enormous amount of hours to understand what the new district agreement could mean financially to Heath.
Dated 1/1/24 to keep it at the top of the blog.
Some of my understanding, please correct me in the comment section if I am wrong:
As a concerned resident of Heath and in no way in an official capacity, Ken Rocke has put in an enormous amount of hours to understand what the new district agreement could mean financially to Heath. Below are links that he references in his presentation regarding the amendment.
