The Jaffrey-Rindge School District has established its budget development calendar for the upcoming school year. 

The school board met Monday, deciding to hold a public hearing to discuss the budget and warrant articles on Jan. 11 at Conant High School. If there is a bond being sought this year, there will be an additional meeting on Jan. 15, with a Feb. 16 snow date. 

Deliberative session this year will be held on Feb. 7 at Rindge Memorial School.

Budget discussions will begin on Dec. 11. 

Curriculum and Instruction Director Misty McBrierty updated the board on the district’s work with curriculum progressions. 

McBrierty said the new system, when implemented, will focus on learner outcomes for various content areas K-12 that are designed on national standards. Outcomes are organized into learning progressions. 

The board also discussed a draft revision to the district’s articles of agreement.

The changes are a result of the board wanting to update the document. Any changes will have to be approved by a vote in March.
