  1. Budget 2010 -2011 The Board of Education wished to hold costs down for the community!

  2. Problem: • No State Approved Budget • Governor’s Proposed cut in Operational Aid………………….(-$496,000)

  3. Board of Education Decisions; • Eliminate 4 teaching positions-2 elementary, 2 Jr.Sr. HS • Eliminate the After-school program • Eliminate one school counselor position • Eliminate one school psychologist position • Eliminate five teaching assistant positions • No longer offer the HFMBOCES-Alternate Education program; create our own after regular school hours program to serve those students • Maintain 7th & 8th summer program • Maintain G.E.D. program during the school year • Offer a Summer Driver Education program charging tuition for all students

  4. Changes in programs as a result of Board of Education Decisions; • Student/Teacher ratio in elementary grades; First Grade, we currently have an average class size of 14/1 which would change for 2010-2011 school year to 15/1. Grade six, we currently have an average class size of 20/1 which would have no change for 2010-2011 with one less teacher at that grade level. • Eliminating an English teacher will result in our staff not teaching some of our distance learning courses, however our students would still be able to take courses offered on the network. • Eliminating five teaching assistants will reduce the number of our in classroom support personnel in the elementary classrooms for remediation needs of our students. • Elimination of our elementary guidance counselor will mean we will no long be able to teach the Life Skills curriculum, which helps children in problem solving and social emotional decision making. • Reducing a teacher in P.E. will increase enrollments in physical education classes and create less separate adaptive physical education classes.

  5. Proposition1 – Budget • 2010-increase proposed in Tax Levy 0.49% • Current year, total budget-$17,455,000 to $18,550,000 6.27% • Increase of $1,095,000

  6. Expenditures held down! • General Support…-0.05%..(-$946) • Why? Salaries…………..………..3.02%.......$23,904 Reduced Contractual…...-1.43%….(-$10,324) Reduced Supplies…….…-8.63%…..(-$7,500) BOCES Service………….-1.74%…..(-$7,026)

  8. Expenditures (Continued) • Pupil Transportation…..1.65%..$15,546.56 • Why? Salaries……………………(-2.20%)....(-$14,453.44) Parts & Supplies………….11.76%....$17,000.00

  9. Expenditures (Continued) • Employee Benefits………..4.11%...$177,869.91 • Why? • Health Insurance increase………5.68%........$159,744.31 • Life Insurance……………………..4.38%............$1,788.00 • Employee Retirement…………..16.46%..........$34,520.60 • Teacher Retirement……………...3.12%...........$17,105.00 • Social Security……………….…(-5.39%)…....(-$35,288.00)

  10. Expenditures (Continued) • Transfer to Debt Service increase...…$1,339,936.75…...109.15% • Why? (Increase is due to the Start of Debt Service Payments for the new capital project… This increase in Expenditures is Offset by a matching increase in Revenues for State Building Aid. Meaning that this increase has ZERO IMPACT, neither increasing nor decreasing the Tax Levy.) • Transfer to Debt Service increase…$1,339,936.75

  11. Proposition1 – Budget • 2010-increase proposed in Tax Levy-$19,004.56 0.49% • Current year, total budget-$17,455,000 to $18,550,000 6.27% • Increase of $1,095,000

  12. Why an increase in Budget? • We must report the entire value of the budget, which includes new revenues; • $1,340,935 is new Building Aid • $68,975 is new Excess Cost Aid • $27,593 is new BOCES Aid • $26 is new Textbooks Aid • However overall spending portion of the budget for Contingent Comparison is down (-$363,581.50) or (-2.20%)

  13. Contingency Budget • Contingent Budget Comparison Since the proposed budget is $363, 581.50 below the contingent budget cap of 0.0%, no additional cuts in programs or staff would be required. After consideration of contingent regulations; -Downtown bus runs would be suspended unless donations were raised in the amount of $2,000. -Any non-school related use of buildings would require a charge. NO restoring of positions or additional cuts would be made to reach calculated Contingent Budget - $0.00

  14. Proposition 2-Bus Purchase • Authorizes the Fort Plain Board of Education to borrow no more than $224,000 to buy two half size buses, with wheelchair lifts. • Under current aid formula, New York State will reimburse the Fort Plain Central School District for more than 80 percent of the cost of the vehicles over five years. • Our financing plan is designed to match state aid payments, which mean there is NO COST to the taxpayers for this proposition.

  15. A positive vote on proposition 2 will provide for the much needed replacement of these specialized vehicles with the following benefits… • Maintain a safe, newer fleet with lower mileage and wear • Reduced operating costs with these buses under warranty • Continue stabilized fleet costs for these vehicles

  16. Action • May 18th @ The Harry Hoag Elementary VOTE for a fiscally responsible budget! • Why does the Board of Education recommend this budget?

  17. Because it will ... - adjust staffing levels to • Preserve relative existing student/teacher ratio at the elementary school • Maintain all College in the High School classes and as many Distance Learning offerings as schedule will permit • Existing extracurricular programs • Interscholastic athletics and other extracurricular programs remain intact

  18. The Board of Education feels they have met their objectives. • A positive vote on the school budget May 18th from 11:00a.m.-9:00p.m. will enable our system to continue to move forward technologically and provide our students with the tools necessary to compete in our rapidly changing world economy at an affordable cost to the community.

  19. Members of Board of Education – Vote for Two • Charles Trembley • Jami L. Stevens • Donald Yerdon • Ronald Kardash
