It's T-minus three days and counting to budget season.
On Wednesday, Superintendent of Schools Mary Conway is scheduled to present her budget proposal for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
The meeting is slated to begin at 6 p.m. at the Board of Education administration building.
A public comment session is on tap to follow the presentation.
The Board of Education in November adopted two major budgetary priorities.
• "Extend the school day to support students and extend opportunities to continue learning opportunities for students throughout the summer months."
• Implement full-day kindergarten.
This year's $48 million school budget represents an increase of about $700,000.
The school board has scheduled three workshops to deliberate over the budget proposal over the next month. The school board has scheduled a special meeting to vote on the spending plan on Feb. 4 at 6 p.m.
The education budget proposal is to be delivered to Mayor George Apel four days later.
Attached is the meeting agenda and the full school board budget calendar.
