Area school districts adjust to state budget


Months of state budget uncertainty have transitioned into painful reality for a number of area school districts. In Bridgeport, which had already lost kindergarten aides, the district’s Parent Center and a chunk of its reading and math teachers, there is still a $4 million gap to bridge. In Fairfield, there is worry the district could be saddled with as much as $1 million in new special education expenses. And in Stratford, a state budget may be in place, but a municipal one is still waiting until after Tuesday’s election. “We have no idea whether they will want to pass the loss of $1 million in (Education Cost Sharing) onto the district,” Stratford Schools Superintendent Janet Robinson said.
