Natick selectmen are expected to vote tonight on whether to ask voters to approve a Proposition 2 1/2 override to cover increased school costs.
The override would raise an additional $2.1 million over the town administrator's proposed budget, which School Department officials say would require deep cuts in education services.
The fiscal 2008 budget approved by the School Committee is 8.8 percent higher than this year's budget and incorporates hikes in special education funding and teacher salaries.
School Committee Chairman Henry Haugland has said the override would cost the average taxpayer an extra $12.50 a month. The selectmen meet at 7 p.m. Monday at Town Hall, 13 E. Central St.
