Kent voters approved an $11.09 million budget proposal May 18 for fiscal year 2012-13.
The plan represents a $284,304, or 2.63 percent, increase over the present year.
The mill rate will remain at 14.27 mills, according to the town clerk's office.
The Region 1 education budget will go to a second referendum on Thursday, May 31, with voting from noon to 8 p.m. in each town's town hall.
The proposed budget is $14,689,096, which would represent a $10,000 increase over the current fiscal year.
The Region 1 Board of Education has cut $278,453 from its 2012-13 budget in response to the May 7 referendum defeat of its original budget proposal.
