School officials will hold three town hall meetings this month to field input from residents on a proposed budget for the 2013-2014 school year.

The meeting locations and times are as follows:
- Feb. 12, 7 p.m. in the Shorewood High School Library, 1701 E. Capitol Dr. (During the regular School Board meeting)
- Feb. 14, 8:30 a.m. in the Atwater’s Early Elementary Center, 2100 E. Capitol Dr. (EEC-SW)

The School Board hopes to vote on a preliminary budget by March to allow administrators to begin the hiring process of new teachers and staff earlier than the district typically has in past years.
