CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The School Committee voted on Thursday to cap the amount of school choice funds that can be used to offset the budget.    The committee determined an amount of $300,000 to prevent the account from being completely drained.    "I think it's really important," Superintendent Jonathan Lev said in recommending the action. "It's our only emergency money."   He called the dependence on school choice worrisome because budgets are not going down. The district is keeping services level for next fiscal year since it's not hiring any staff but not also not cutting any.    The district expects to start the year
