WESTON, Conn. -- The Weston Board of Education made cuts to staffing and other areas following a proposed 1.68 percent increase in the operating budget for the academic 2016-17 year, according to The Weston Forum.

Schools Superintendent Colleen Palmer said the administration and school board spent months working on a fiscally responsible budget, The Weston Forum reported.

The proposed budget of $49,317,488 reflects an $813,707 increase from this year's budget, said The Weston Forum.

With the enrollment expected to decrease from 2,374 to 2,321 for grades K-12, the budget reflects a net decrease of 3.63 positions, according to The Weston Forum.
