The FY2024 DPS Operating budget was presented to the Dedham Town Finance and Warrant Committee in March. Fiscal 2024 presents significant budgeting challenges for the School Department and the community. Extraordinary increases in utilities and other fixed operating costs represent increases beyond the control of the District and the Town. Given these increases, the FY24 budget request required the DPS administrative team and the Budget Subcommittee to carefully weigh priorities and develop a plan for fiscal resources that ensures all students continue to receive a high quality learning experience in school facilities that are safe, welcoming, and provisioned for an engaging educational environment.
