CBE in the News
Most of you have probably heard about CBE budget issues in the news recently. It is important for all parents to know that the budget is still under development and no final decisions have been made. The budget will be presented to the Board of Trustees at a public meeting on June 1, 2010. At that time, the Board will discuss how the CBE can best allocate funds for the coming year.
