Norwich school officials say they’re in a catch-22 situation, when it comes to the city’s education budget for the next fiscal year.   Aldermen have approved a temporary municipal spending and tax plan which keeps education spending at current levels.  Superintendent Abby Dolliver says it’s appears impossible to fulfill that proposal, unless the school year is reduced by 20 days, which violates the state-mandated 180-day school calendar.  Dolliver, speaking during the school district’s first-ever live forum Thursday night on Facebook, says there just isn’t much room in the school budget to cut.  The school board requested a 3-percent spending increase.  She says required teacher layoffs to meet the city council’s budget request could mean class sizes of 40 students, which would be illegal in some school buildings due to fire safety codes.
