SCARBOROUGH — Most of the job cuts in the superintendent’s proposed school budget remain in place following a review by the Board of Education’s Finance Committee.

The Finance Committee is sending the school board a budget that reinstates a half-time guidance counselor at the high school, keeps activity fees steady at the middle and high school levels and adds a position for math curriculum at the kindergarten through fifth-grade levels.

The $35.3 million budget presented by Interim Superintendent Jo Anne Sizemore eliminates nearly 24 full-time positions. The Finance Committee’s adjustments add about $200,000 in expenditures but also includes updated, higher revenue figures.

The Finance Committee’s budget represents an increase in spending of about 1.4 percent over the current budget, according to Robert Mitchell, the panel’s chairman. He noted that the school budget has been nearly flat in the past couple of years as revenue falls.

The budget goes to the school board for possible final approval Thursday. The budget then goes to the Town Council, which must approve the bottom-line figure.
