The regional board approved a budget that is about $300,000 less than the current spending plan.
In the face of a roughly $740,000 loss in state funding under Gov. Lincoln Chafee's proposed budget for fiscal 2014, the Bristol-Warren Joint Finance Committee approved about a $300,000 reduction in school costs for next year. The video from last week's JFC session, held at Mt. Hope High School, has been posted online by the Bristol-Warren School District. Running just under 90 minutes, the video shows the budget presentation by Supt. Melinda Thies and brief remarks by members of the JFC and Bristol resident Nina Murphy before the JFC takes a unanimous vote on the $53.7-million spending plan. Bristol Town Councilor Halsey Herreshoff — whose town's share of the budget would increase by about $817,000 to just over $22 million — is shown …

Fellow Warren residents and taxpayers, We, the Warren representatives of the Bristol-Warren Regional School Committee, wanted to take this time to address the school-related issues that have been discussed in our local newspapers, social media sites and coffee houses.
