2018-19 School Budget Information

2018-19 School Budget Vote

     Greenwich Central School District residents will vote on a $21,663,160 budget proposal for the 2018-19 school year on Tuesday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Primary Building Gymnasium. Under the proposal a 3.5 percent increase in spending would maintain the K-12 education program for Greenwich students next year. Included in this 3.5% expense budget is a $100,00 Capital Outlay Project. This type of project would be planned in 2018-19, expensed in 2019-20 with building aid returned in 2020-21 with an estimated building aid ratio of 82%. After considering the budget proposal, residents will vote on a $230,000 proposition to purchase two 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 two seats 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 16. The Board of Education worked with district and school leaders to develop the 2018-19 budget proposal, which was informed by the district's mission, educational goals and fiscal challenges and opportunities.
