Budget 2019-2020

  • Budget Document

    This linked document includes 11 different ways of viewing the proposed budget for 2019-20. Each of the five organizations of the budget (function, object, location, program and administrator) includes both a summary and a line-by-line document. The budget reflects an increase of 2.94% over 2018-19 and includes proposed changes in staffing. The Board of Education finalized the budget on April 16 for presentation to the voters in the annual school budget vote on May 21. The tax levy increase of 1.97% is significantly less than the levy limit of 2.62% and, in fact, is more than 600 thousand dollars less than the district is allowed by law under the levy limit.

    Included in each of the "Summary" and "Line by Line" sections are actual expenditures for 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 as well as the voter approved (current) budget for 2018-19, the proposed budget for 2019-20, and the difference in percentage between the proposed budget and the current budget. The "Detailed" budget includes the actual expenditures for 2017-18, the current budget, and the proposed budget for 2019-20 as well as a description of each item the district plans to purchase under each budget code.

    In addition to the budget numbers, the attached document also includes a narrative describing the functional units of the budget, the School Report Cards, and other reports required by New York State to be made available to the public at least seven days before the Public Budget Hearing which will be held on May 9 as part of the regular Board of Education meeting.
