The Tuckahoe Union Free School District is outlining its budget process for the 2013-14 school district. Here are the details from district officials.
The 2013-14 Budget Process has begun. We look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming Board of Education (BOE) meetings to discuss this very important topic.
Each year, we discuss the upcoming budget for the following school year. These decisions impact all of us regardless of whether or not your children attend our schools.
In our current budget proposal, the Superintendent has identified various areas that could potentially be cut in order to bridge the significant deficit we are facing if we were to maintain all of the programs and services that exist this school year.
The Superintendent is also proposing additions to the budget that can enhance our academic program. These cuts and add-ons can be found on the District’s website: www.tuckahoeschools.org / District Resources / Budget Documents / 2013 – 2014 Budget.
We should all be aware of our options when looking at budget choices to be made so we can make informed decisions and craft a budget that takes into account the economic realities of these times while maintaining a program that will help our children to succeed.
Here are some important dates in the budget process. We hope to see all of you there!
April 8: BOE Budget Workshop (just added)
April 23: BOE Budget adoption
May 13: Public hearing on Budget
May 21: 2013-14 Budget vote and Trustee Election
The opinion and feedback of our community is crucial in the budget process and ask that you stay informed.
It’s your District your community and your choice…helps us craft a budget that benefits both and allows us to keep our Promise to Prepare for Tomorrow.
