DERBY >> The Board of Education Thursday unanimously approved a $17.3 million budget for the 2015-16 school year.
The budget is about $676,000, or 3.2 percent, more than the current $16.6 million budget. It next heads to the city’s Board of Apportionment and Taxation for a review, which has been scheduled for March 31 at City Hall.
