- Relating to the provision of special education services for the 2021-22 budget year, our pupil:teacher ratio is 14:1 and our pupil:staff ratio is 7:1.

Some important notes and explanations:
Returning classroom teachers at NPA are receiving a 3% increase over their 2020-21 base salaries. When there are changes in teaching staff where a teacher with less experience replaces a teacher with more experience, the resulting overall average increase can be below the standard salary increase of 3%.
UPCOMING/CURRENT FISCAL YEAR:
NPA’s Governing Board proposed its expenditure budget for Fiscal Year 2021 on June 21st, 2021, and voted to adopt the budget at a meeting on July 12th, 2021. On September 27th, 2021, the Board revised the budget, only in that it was recorded on the updated budget form published by the Auditor General subsequent to the state legislature adopting its FY22 budget. The only difference in the revision is the use of that form with updated per student allotments – the expenditures are identical to the budget adopted on July 12th.
Below are links to a summary of the budget expenditures, the budget revenue worksheet, as well as notification of the hearing by the Board:
