CIT Budget

Ms. Arianne Jones presented a proposed budget for CIT to the board. (Dr. Roth has retired). Five districts send students to CIT and Nazareth’s numbers have increased over the last three years (91, 97 and, this year, 127). CIT is proposing a 3.32% increase in budget over last year which will come to approximately a $37,000 increase. However, the district will also get back close to $36,000 in over-payments from last year.

  • Riker said the board would review the budget and vote on it at next Monday’s meeting (January 30th)

A representative from the Student Government, Clarice, announced that they are planning a Winter Formal to be held on March 17th from 7:00-10:00PM and that the cost is estimated to be $45.

  • Riker pointed out that winter isn’t really here yet and maybe they should rename it the Spring Formal
