The Bedford School Committee has scheduled a legally-required virtual public hearing on the proposed fiscal 2024 local education budget for Tuesday beginning at 7 p.m.
The link to the session, which will be in a Zoom webinar format, is available as part of the School Committee agenda posted at https://www.bedfordps.org/node/1173/agenda/2023.

“Prior to such public hearing said committee shall make available to the public at least one copy of said proposed budget for a time period of not less than forty-eight hours either at the office of the superintendent of schools or at a place so designated by said committee,” the law reads.
“All interested persons shall be given an opportunity to be heard for or against the whole or any part of the proposed budget.”
