The 2018-19 Proposed Budget of $36,298,407 is a 3.59% increase over the 2017-18 budget. Click here to view the budget statement.
“We received only $120,000 of additional foundation aid in the adopted New York State budget for 2018-2019. This increase in foundation aid does not nearly cover the increase in costs noted above,” said Superintendent Andrea L. Galenski. “We have calculated that since 2007-2008, our District has lost $35,551,155 in foundation aid because it was not provided to us like it should have been. With a total net in increased costs of $1,254,871 for the 2018-19 Budget, we applied the $120,000 of additional aid and additional building aid received as a result of our capital construction.”
The district vote will be held on May 15, 2018, from 12 pm – 9 pm in the JFK HS Gymnasium.
