With the school budget passed on to the Town Council, the Farmington Board of Education will meet tonight at Noah Wallace School at 7 p.m. for its first regular meeting in two months.
During the meeting, the board is slated to hear an update from the superintendent of schools on the district’s participation in the Open Choice program. The superintendent’s memo in the March 11 agenda outlines the many financial incentives the district receives for enrolling Open Choice students.
Currently, Farmington has 97 Open Choice students – 2.3 percent of the student population.
The board will also hear an update from the district’s new food service vendor, Chartwells, on how well the cafeteria program is faring.
At the beginning of the meeting, Rick Mulcunry and Farmington High School students from Construction I, Construction II and Wood Technology Program will be recognized by the board and members of the cast of the Farmington High School production of Footloose will be present to perform briefly for the board.
