The Manchester Board of Education will hold its second of three workshops Wednesday to review Interim Superintendent Richard Kisiel's .
Under Kisiel's proposal, teachers would receive a 1.5 percent wage increase, no teachers would be laid off and classroom sizes would remain unchanged, but 10 paraprofessional positions would be eliminated. Kisiel's proposal also includes a 2.25 percent increase in administrator salaries, a roughly $1 million increase in special education funding and the replacement of five vehicles within the district's maintenance fleet.
The school board must still vote to approve Kisiel's budget proposal, and can make amendments, additions and subtractions. If the school board does vote to endorse Kisiel’s plan, it would then go before the Board of Directors, which has the final say on the town’s overall budget and could also alter it.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in Room 293 of Manchester High School located at 134 East Middle Turnpike.
