2015-16 Proposed Budget

     Published on   Tagged under:    District News   

The proposed 2015-16 budget has a continued focus on improving student achievement by aligning resources with the district’s strategic plan, Great Expectations.  In particular, the budget is predicated on five priorities:
  1. Ensure college, career and civic readiness
  2. Investing in our teachers and leaders
  3. Fostering vibrant school cultures and climates, and serving all students
  4. Creating a culture of excellence
  5. Engaging, informing and listening

These priorities encompass the following initiatives: ongoing curriculum development and revision; additional intervention support for struggling learners; continued support for the APPR process; ongoing support for compliance with the Assurance of Discontinuance; and the expansion of security supports at schools.  In addition, the district will continue to expand classrooms and instructional resources at Delaware Primary, Syracuse Latin, and the Public Service Leadership Academy at Fowler, as these schools enter their second year.

There will be two public hearings on the proposed 2015-16 budget:
Thursday, March 5th at 5:30 PM (District Board Room, 725 Harrison St.)
Wednesday, March 11th at 5:00 PM (District Board Room, 725 Harrison St.)

Listed below is the presentation provided to the Board of Education.
