2019-2020 School Budget Information

2019-20 School Budget Vote

     Greenwich Central School District residents will vote on a $21,976,710 budget proposal for the 2019-20 school year on Tuesday, May 21st., from 8 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Primary Building Gymnasium. Under the proposal a 1.45% percent increase in spending would maintain the K-12 education program for Greenwich students next year. Included in this expense budget is a $100,000 Capital Outlay Project. This type of project would be planned in 2019-20, expensed in 2020-21 with building aid returned in 2021-22 with an estimated building aid ratio of 82%. After considering the budget proposal, residents will vote on a $220,000 proposition to purchase (2) 72-passenger school buses. This would allow the district to replace aging buses and maintain a 10-year replacement cycle, based on the typical lifespan of a school bus. Voters also will elect candidates to fill one five-year seat on the Greenwich Board of Education. Those interested in submitting a board candidate petition should call (518) 692-9542 during the week between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to receive a candidate packet. The deadline for all candidates' petitions is Monday, April 22nd. The Board of Education worked with district and school leaders to develop the 2019-20 budget proposal, which was informed by the district's mission, educational goals and fiscal challenges and opportunities.
