On May 16, 2023, Tri-Valley Central School District voters approved a budget of $36,497,136 for the 2023-2024 calendar year. This represents a 1.84% increase over the current year’s budget.
The increase to tax levy dollars to fund the budget is 1.49% ($315,207). This is approximately 40% less than the District’s calculated tax cap for 2023-24 of 2.46% ($519,615). The Expenditure Plan does not eliminate any current educational or extracurricular programs. The safety and wellness of staff and students is a high priority and initiatives to enhance those areas have been built in. The fact that the “cost of doing business” has escalated post-pandemic creates challenges. However, careful examination of prior years’ efforts and the overall effectiveness of those expenditures has enabled the planning to shift funds to meet the needs of our District and its shareholders. The use of various Federal funding opportunities has enabled the District to address both facility and educational spaces and programming needs. The upcoming school year signals the end of such funding and the assessing and implementation of what we want to accomplish is well underway. The use of these funds and the approved budget for 2023-24 are focused not only on next year, but for providing budgetary stability over the next few years.
The district budget aligns with our goal of continuous academic improvement and supports innovation and college and career readiness.
