My feeling (and i watched the whole meeting) was that the school board said feel free to come to our meetings but we don't want to have a committee watching over us.
TIS, can you provide a pointer to the link to watch these meetings? Thanks.

If they don't attend meetings to keep a check on costs or vote down the continuing increases each year than nothing will change.

Thanks for bringing up the GWRSB Finance Committee meeting, it sheds a lot of light on what is wrong with the oversight of the budget.
Minor tweak to your point: The voters of all seven towns in the district vote on the budget, not just Wolfeboro.
