$3.1 MILLION BUDGET CUT THREATENS CRITICAL PROGRAMS


As a result of the school district's projected budget deficit of more than $100 million for the 2022-23 school year, Lowell is facing a budget cut of $3.1 million and the loss of more than two dozen teachers and staff.

Programs that may be reduced or eliminated run the gamut from journalism and instrumental music to various language programs (Italian, Japanese and Latin), Advanced Placement courses (Psychology, Environmental Science, European History and Computer Science), Peer Resources and Yearbook.

We may also lose our College and Career Center Director, one of our two librarians, our Theater Tech Director and other staff.

The Lowell PTSA has provided $300,000 in emergency funding while more than two dozen Lowell teachers have volunteered to shift to part-time status for the 2022-23 academic year in order to help save the jobs of junior colleagues.

Now is the time for Lowell alumni and other friends to step up to play our part in preserving critical programs that serve Lowell students. Thank you for your support!
