U-E School Budget Adopted: No Layoffs or Program Cuts

Looks like they are going to do it again, in Union-Endicott.
 
The school district has again come up with a budget that will call for no staff cuts or program trimmings--

The 76 million dollar budget was adopted by the school board Monday evening. --and it stays within the tax levy limit at 2.49 percent.

The superintendent says some painfull cuts from before, helped prevent more, now:

"Reflecting back a few years ago, Union-Endicott cut over a hundred positions and so we're operating from a relatively small base as a result. We think very carefully about all of our programs and out current staffing as we develop the budget so that the board has an accurate view of the necessary expenditures in order to provide the services that the children require,"--said superintendent Suzanne McLleod.

increased state aid, now totalling around 27 million dollars has also helped to prevent layoffs.

A public hearing on the spending plan is scheduled for May 13th.
District residents vote on it, on May 20th.
