Norwich School District Addressing Fiscal Stress
Norwich City School District Superintendent Dr. Diana Bowers issued an update on the district’s finances and where things stand as they get ready for 2020. A 2018 report from State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office found Norwich was in significant financial distress. Bowers says they have taken a number of steps including hiring a forensic auditor along with a business manager, plus the district’s budget was frozen after Thanksgiving. The district is holding budget meetings on Feb. 5 and Mar. 11.
