Lynn school committee discusses FY2021 budget

LYNN -- A proposed Fiscal Year 2021 budget that includes an additional $10.5 million investment in technology and staffing is now in the hands of the Lynn School Committee. 

"I think it shows forward movement on our strategic objectives," said School Superintendent Dr. Patrick Tutwiler, who laid out the budget to the School Committee last week. "And it came from embracing feedback from the community. There were some core elements that came out of that feedback with the community, including the mental health of our students, supporting special education, improvements in innovation in instruction."

The $169.8 million budget was increased significantly from the past year due to an influx of state aid, which was a result of an uptick in enrollment in the district.
