Draft 2019-20 budget contains modest additions to address student needs

Preliminary plan calls for 0 percent tax levy increase

 

At the board of education meeting on April 9, School Business Official Georgia Gonzalez presented a draft $48,393,178 budget for 2019-20 that continues all current student programs and includes some modest program additions and other investments to meet student needs and improve security.

View the April 9 presentation here.

During her presentation, Ms. Gonzalez estimated a district revenue projection for 2019-20 that would decrease by $455,935 over the prior year. The budget committee is proposing to reduce the budget through decreases in costs related to attrition (retirements) and the use of unappropriated funds (revenue left over from prior year’s budgets.)

The draft proposal includes improvements that represent the district’s goal to increase student outcomes by providing a quality instructional foundation with extra enrichment and support to meet student needs. The proposals below are driven by shifts in enrollment and student needs in the classroom, after school hours and on the athletic fields.

The draft proposal maintains all existing academic programs; creates a third School Resource Officer position and includes funding for four translation devices which would provide real time, two-way translation; an after-school tutoring program at the middle and high school; additional security cameras at the middle and high school; and field maintenance equipment for the soccer, softball and baseball fields. The proposal also establishes start up funds for a future MakerSpace at the high school.

The district will finalize its budget proposal at the end of the month. The Liberty Central School District Board of Education will adopt the proposal on April 23 and district residents will vote on the proposed budget on May 21.
