The Union #28 Joint Supervisory Committee votes an annual budget for the Union #28 Central Office expenses. However, before this budget is voted, it is thoroughly vetted and reviewed, first by the Union #28 Budget and Personnel SubCommittee, then by each of the local school committees. Each year, the proposed Union #28 budget is reviewed at the local school committee meetings and town/public input is received. Once these local 'hearings' have occurred, the Budget and Personnel SubCommittee reviews the feedback received and creates a recommendation for the full Union #28 Joint Supervisory Committee. A public hearing is held at the January Union #28 Joint Supervisory School Committee meeting and a budget is voted. Each town then pays a percentage of the Union #28 budget based upon the percentage of enrollment their students comprise for the entire  Union #28 student population.
