On May 9, voters in Ridgefield decide with their vote whether to support or reduce the school operating budget. We believe our school system provides a high-quality education at a good value and deserves your support.
Ridgefield’s public schools deliver quality education efficiently. Ridgefield currently spends $16,523 per student. That translates into 10% less than Wilton and 15% less than Weston. In dollar cost, if we spent what Wilton spends per student, our school budget would be almost $10 million more than it is. Also, relative to our peer group, our administrative costs are among the lowest. We are able to maintain this efficiency while also maintaining small neighborhood elementary schools.
