The latest elementary school cost savings projection is available on the Wayland School Committee web site

here, updated 12-18-2008. A brief summary is below.

- SCHOOL BUDGET SUB-TOTAL: $451,364
- MUNICIPAL SUB-TOTAL: $98,500
- OVERALL TOTAL: $549,864

The difference between this estimate and the prior one is the removal of one elementary school classroom section. The estimate above correctly accounts for the difference between the number of elementary sections that would have been needed for a three school configuration (59) during the current school year compared with the actual number in the "two and a half" school configuration (57, with one fewer at the Kindergarten and Grade 4 levels).
