Union Endicott Schools Works Through Budget
4/8/2013 (Updated 10:58:19 PM)The Union-Endicott School District was talking about its own budget numbers Monday night.
At a workshop, the district discussed its proposed $74 million dollar spending plan.
That's an increase of more than two-and-a-half million dollar from the year before.
But school officials say what they have to be careful about is getting used to the extra money, thinking it will continue.
Actually, there is no guarantee that increases in funding from the state will continue beyond this budget.
"That even though we have had a turn around this year we still are maintaining our focus on austerity and looking very hard at in both precedents courses and in grades as well as absolutely everything to make decisions as to whether it will continue forward," said Superintendent, Suzanne Mcleod.
Despite the increase in state funds, the proposed budget also calls for a 2.06 tax levy increase.
Union-Endicott is getting one-time grants of 3.1 million dollars from the State Senate and State Assembly to help make up for the decreased tax base after the Huron Campus was re-assessed.
