Article 15: CCHS Technology Fund approved

Town Meeting voted unanimously under Article 15 to create a Technology Stabilization Fund for the Concord-Carlisle Regional High School (CCHS). Its purpose will be to reserve funds to be used for network upgrades and replacement of technology equipment. A sum of $5,800, in the school district’s available funds, will be transferred into this new account.

Regional School Committee (RSC) member Louis Salemy said there were large benefits from technology at the high school, but “it is hard to keep up with the replacement cycle.” This fund is expected to lessen the strains on the operating budget for buying technology. He said it was sound financial planning to set aside money to pay for technology and it is expected that money will be put into the fund yearly.

The Board of Selectmen, the Finance Committee and the RSC recommended that the article be passed. ∆
