  1. Fulton City School District 2012-13 Draft Budget

  2. NYS Financial Problem • Constrained Current Revenues – Economy • NYS has Changed Education Policy in Funding Public Education • NYS Continues to Freeze Foundation Aid at 2008-09 Levels, Continues to Impose a Gap Elimination Adjustment on School Districts and Index Increases in Education Aid Based on Personal Income Tax Receipts (Capped at 4%)

Federal Jobs Bill Ends in June 2012 - $404,000 in Staffing to Continue Governor’s Proposed Budget –$427,000 of the Increase in Aid is Directly Tied to the District’s New Cost for the Oswego County BOCES Capital Project beginning this Year.

  10. Impact of Governor’s Proposal • State Aid Impact Increases Funding by $1.2 Million • Cost to Maintain Current 2011-12 Programs, Services and Operations Including $404,000 Funded Positions in the Federal Jobs Bills Results in a $2..8 Million Budget Gap • Combined Initial Impact on Local Tax Levy = 14.4% Increase • Unrealistic and Not Sustainable to District and Tax Payers
