Hearings on BPS budget set for next week

Boston Public School officials will get the first at-bat next week as the City Council weighs Mayor Thomas Menino's $2.4 billion fiscal 2012 budget.

A Monday hearing on the BPS budget - which comes in at $829 million - starts at 9:30 a.m. in the Iannella Chamber, and is expected to stretch into the afternoon. Mark Ciommo, chair of the Ways and Means Committee, and John Connolly, chair of the Education Committee, will oversee the proceedings.

On Tuesday, at 10 a.m., city budget officials will be up, giving an overview of the budget.

The rest of the hearings, which will last until the end of June, are available here as a PDF, though some times and dates may be subject to change.
