The Brookfield school board recently passed its $47 million budget for the 2020-2021 school year, sending it on to the selectmen and then finance board.

It is 6.65 percent more than the current budget.

Board members unanimously adopted it after discussing possible cuts for an hour and 45 minutes.

The adopted budget is nearly $65,000 less than Superintendent John Barile’s proposed budget and cuts presentation stations, books, periodicals and subscriptions, as well as new library books at Huckleberry Hill Elementary School, Whisconier Middle School and Brookfield High School.

The board had asked Barile to present possible cuts and the implications, which also included social studies professional development, one of the two proposed first grade teachers, textbooks, the K-6 world language program.
