The Princeton Regional Board of Education will hold a Budget Workshop on Wednesday, February 13, at 6 p.m. at the Valley Road Administration Building. The purpose of the meeting, which is open to the public, is to discuss the 2008-9 budget. No action will be taken. Two of the main issues discussed at the Board’s previous Budget Workshop, on January 28, were the disposition of the Valley Road Building, and plans for Pre-K programming. Under a new state mandate, the District is required to provide a full-day, Pre-K program for students from low-income families. Creating a new Pre-K program, and renovation and/or demolition of the Valley Road building will both impact the amount of money available for the coming budget year.
