The Dover School Committee has revised its budget for fiscal 2008, reducing Chickering Elementary School’s funding by about $200,000 to help the town avoid an override.
Committee members discussed the changes at a recent meeting. The new budget reduces salaries by $94,000, which includes savings from retirements and consolidation of several positions.
The school will also save around $75,000 because special education costs will be lower than expected. The committee also cut $15,000 that had been set aside for unanticipated maintenance at Chickering.
Committee members said they were asked to make the cuts by other town officials, who hope to avoid a tax override this year.
