“Some positive factors that helped to balance the budget include the following: increases in Foundation Aid, Excess Cost Aid, Transportation Aid, Charter School Transition Aid and BOCES Aid. In addition, Debt Service is reduced as the debt for older capital projects is diminished,” said Superintendent Mary Morris. “These factors allow us to maintain next year’s instructional offerings, class sizes, and interscholastic activities. We also had
some challenges, such as increases to contractual Salaries and Benefits, as well as a substantial increases to Transportation and Outside Tuition Expense.”
