    Every warrant article passed by a wide margin at the town meeting-style school budget meeting April 30, in the dollar amount each was proposed on the warrant, Superintendent of Schools Kim Andersson said. 

    The meeting was the first test with voters for the 2024-25 budget that goes to a final town vote June 11. The school committee has proposed a $10,573,002 budget, up $251,473 from this year’s. Due to a 3.61% cut in state aid, the increase to local taxpayers would be 6.12%, Andersson has said.
