The Milford School Committee on Thursday will discuss whether the district will accept school choice pupils in the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. 

The district must vote prior to June 1 about school choice, and Superintendent Robert Tremblay has recommended that the Milford School Committee vote in favor of the offering. More will be discussed at Thursday night's meeting.

Meanwhile, Assistant Superintendent for Business and Human Resources Kathleen Perry will update the committee on the Fiscal Year 2014 budget, as wells updates on personnel and professional development. Milford High School Principal Carolyn Banach will join her to present a budget transfer request.
