Examples of School Districts in Class D and larger in our area Canton Buildings & Grounds $48,478.00 Hermon Dekalb Bldgs & Grounds $49,624.00 Canton Head of Transportation - $39,937.00 Hermon Dekalb Head of Trans - $36,051.00 Canton HS Principal - $78,660.00 Hermon Dekalb PreK - 12 Principal -$84,826.00 Heuvelton Elem Principal & CSE - $86,320.00 Harrisville PreK – 5 th Principal & Supt - $112,198.00 Hermon Dekalb Business Administrator - $67,387.00

Proposed Cuts:

Proposed Cuts Pool Closed ½ year Pool Manager reduced to Part Time Individual transportation of (1) Student 1 Bus Run CSE Secretary reduced to Part Time Drivers Education 2 Teachers Aides

Pool:

Pool Claim to save $45,000 by shutting pool down??? Budgeted for Pool Supplies $7,000.00 Lifeguard $25,821.00 Lifeguard Sub $3,500.00 (Yet when Lifeguard is off pool is closed is this another expenditure for revenue for the school???) Bio Mass Heating System heats the pool New high efficiency pumps save on electric Funding from IEP (if we can not meet student’s IEP we will have to BUS them some where's else) No more Life Guard training or recertification so where will we get low pay hires for summer rec & community swim???

Individual Transportation:

Individual Transportation Bus Driver is paid $11,000.00 for this run Paying the LPN 2 ½ hours or more a day OVER TIME would eat up any savings they might have made by cutting the bus This is also the last year we would need this bus, next year (2012-13) you will have the full savings of the bus driver & the LPN

Drivers Education:

Drivers Education Cont Car - $2,500.00 Mat, Sup & Gas - $2,500.00 Salary $300 per student up to $7,200

Teacher’s Aides:

Teacher’s Aides Sue Kelly’s reason for eliminating the Aides and not the Assistants was because the Aides made more money. 2010-2011 2011-2012 Aide $18,634.00 $19,361.00 Assistant $20,320.00 $21,112.00 In 2010-11 year two people were hired as Teacher’s Assistants and for the first year they are on Entry Level Salary.

Entry Level Salary:

Entry Level Salary Entry level salaries for all positions are paid at 85% of regular wages. Entry salaries shall be for a period of twelve (12) months from date of hire. So therefore what the Assistant’s were paid for 2010-11 year was $17,272.00. Next year 2011-12 they will be paid regular rate which is $21,112.00. That is why it looks like they are saving more money by eliminating the 2 Aides. But in 2011-2012 they will be off entry level salary and earn $1,751.00 more than the Aides.

Mandated Course - Technology:

Mandated Course - Technology Back to school for 3 days after being out with a brain tumor when Mrs. Kelley released him of his position for the following school year. How will it be taught now? Will be split between two teachers Who will teach it? They do not know who will teach what because the curriculum has not been completed yet Mrs. Varian said “Technology is taught in all classes not just one” Technology is a Shared service through BOCES who pay’s us 85% of his salary

Reserve Fund $2.5 Million Dollars:

Reserve Fund $2.5 Million Dollars Goal to make up $192,000 But the outcome was $242,495 yet nothing was given back

Tax Increase 3%:

Tax Increase 3%

April 18, 2010 Board Meeting:

April 18, 2010 Board Meeting We had compiled 32 questions to ask about the budget. We were told they would not answer any questions that they had already passed their proposed budget and would present it on the 10 th of May. We should have been there in January if we wanted to ask questions. Twice we attempted to turn in our amendments and we were refused. They stated the deadline was at 3:00 p.m. and that the Tribune Press date of April 20 th was incorrect. We turned in packets on laws, errors in published calendars, salary comparisons. They did not want to look at our findings. Is this a Board or Administration that cares about the Community? They refuse to answer us and refuse to take our suggestions seriously.

Contingency Budget:

Contingency Budget According to School Law: 33rd Edition (2010), “ordinary contingent expenses have been defined under law to include: (1) legal obligations; (2)expenditures specifically authorized by statute; and (3) other items necessary to maintain the educational program, preserve property and ensure the health and safety of the students and staff…” (p. 84) Legal obligations include debt service, judgments, payments to retirement systems, payroll taxes, pre-existing contractual obligations, etc. Expenditures specifically authorized by statute include: teacher salaries; athletics; field trips; extracurricular activities; transportation; cafeteria expenses; textbooks; conference expenses; in-service training; BOCES services; health services; kindergarten and pre-kindergarten; library resources; etc. Items deemed necessary may include: travel expenses for employees and board members; legal services; teacher supplies; salaries of non-teaching staff; utilities; use of school facilities for teachers’ meetings and parent-teacher association meetings; emergency repairs; etc.

WHAT COSTS ARE NOT INCLUDED :

WHAT COSTS ARE NOT INCLUDED According to School Law: 33rd Edition (2010), contingency budgets cannot include costs for new equipment; public use of the building or grounds when there is a cost to the district, nonessential maintenance and non-emergency capital expenditures. (So they could charge for the use of the building or grounds.)

SPENDING CAPS:

SPENDING CAPS A contingency budget has two spending caps. The first is a spending cap on the total district spending. The formulary for 2011-12 places this spending cap at a total of 1.92% more than the total for 2010-11. The second cap is for the administrative component of the budget. Under this regulation, the administrative costs under a contingency budget must be the lesser of: the percentage of the 2010-11 budget that was assigned to administrative costs (excluding capital component) or the percentage that the administrative component comprised in the last defeated budget (excluding capital component)
