CLARENDON — Voters in the Mill River Unified Union School District have approved a budget of $18,863,541 with $17,710.81 education spending per equalized pupil.

Superintendent David Younce said health benefits and salaries account for the majority of budget costs.

Younce said he expects tuition funds from Black River High School students will offset the staffing expenses. He said at least 30 Black River students plan to attend Mill River this fall after the Ludlow school closes in June.

MRUUSD serves the towns of Shrewsbury, Tinmouth, Wallingford and Clarendon.
