Mayor Walsh proposes $1.09B budget for Boston schools

BOSTON (WHDH) — Mayor Marty Walsh is finalizing his proposed budget for Boston Public Schools.

The $1.09 billion budget is the largest in city history. The new budget increases funding to individual schools by $40 million. A multi-million dollar investment would also fund more nurses, psychologists and social workers in schools.

Walsh will submit the budget to the City Council for final approval later this spring.
