BOARD OF EDUCATION SCOTCH PLAINSFANWOOD, NEW JERSEY 07023 In accordance with the New Jersey Statutes relating hereto, Notice is hereby given that the Board of Education of the School District of the Township of Scotch Plains and the Borough of Fanwood has prepared a tentative budget for the school year beginning July 1, 2000, and ending June 30, 2001, which is on file and open to inspections at the Secretary’s office in the Administration Offices, Cedar Street and Evergreen Avenue, Scotch Plains, New Jersey. It should be observed that expenditures are shown under a GAAP format (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) approved by the New Jersey State Department of Education. This format shows the School District’s tentative budget by general program rather than in the line item structure, thus providing the reader with a better understanding of how the District plans to utilize community resources. Public Hearing on said budget will be held at the Administration Offices, Cedar Street and Evergreen Avenue, Scotch Plains, New Jersey at 8: 00 p. m. on Monday, March 27, 2000. The tentative budget will be on file and open for examination from the date of this Notice until March 27, 2000, between the hours of 9: 00 a. m. and 4: 00 p. m., prevailing time, on regular school days, in the Office of the Secretary, Administration Offices, Cedar Street and Evergreen Avenue, Scotch Plains, New Jersey. The school district has proposed programs and services in addition to the core curriculum content standards adopted by the State Board of Education. Information on this budget and the programs and services it provides is available from your local school district.
