CAMDEN After warning of budget gaps and rising per-pupil costs, Camden school administrators this week will propose a budget $33.5 million smaller than this year's.
The proposed budget, released Saturday, will be the subject of a hearing at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Dudley Elementary School. Superintendent Paymon Rouhanifard will provide more details on where the district will cut.
The $359 million budget, down from the current year's $392 million, calls for a $7 million tax levy.
The budget shows small cuts spread across budget categories, including $4 million in instruction and $2.3 million in administrative spending. Support services for administration will decrease from $6.4 million to an anticipated $4.7 million.
