PORTLAND — The Portland Public Schools will host a town hall-style meeting on the fiscal year 2016 budget on Thursday, Jan. 29, at 6:30 p.m. in the Lyman Moore Middle School library.

The meeting is an opportunity for the public to offer input and feedback on budgeting priorities for the 2015-2016 school year.

The district has also created an online “Neighbor-to-Neighbor Budget Toolkit,” which encourages public participation in the development of the school budget. The online tool can be used by groups or individuals.

The budget meeting will begin with Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk giving a brief introduction of the district’s overarching goals. After that, two half-hour sessions will discuss strengthening the core academic program, stimulating progress for all learners, driving innovation, and investing in infrastructure.
