2017-18 School Budget Information
On May 16th, school district residents will vote on a proposed $9,050,553 budget for the 2017-18 school year.

The proposed budget would increase the district’s tax levy from the current year by 3.69 percent, equal to the district’s calculated tax levy “cap.”

Voters will also elect a representative to a five-year term on the Board of Education. Board member Douglas Gulotty is not seeking re-election for his term that expires June 30. Jay Deitchman will be on the ballot for the seat currently held by Gulotty.

Voters will also consider the purchase of of two 65-passenger school buses at a cost estimated not to exceed $220,000.

The Board of Education worked very hard to develop a budget that builds on our successes. Our focus throughout the process has been on maintaining operational efficiency and effectiveness, and building quality, forward-thinking educational programming.

Attached here are several documents related to the budget, including the budget newsletter and presentation, 3-part budget detail document, 2015-16 Budget Status Report, School District Budget Notice, New York State Report Card, Property Tax Report Card, Fiscal Accountability Supplement, Administrative Salary Disclosure, Exemption Impact Report.

We all share responsibility in educating our children. Please call, email, or stop in if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Sincerely,
Thomas G. Jennings, Superintendent
