School Budget Presentation Thursday
Residents can ask questions after a presentation on the proposed 2013-14 spending plan is given at Wayne Valley High School.
The second of two public presentations on the 2013-14 school district budget will be held at Wayne Valley High School at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Attendees will have the chance to ask Superintendent Ray Gonzalez and the Board of Education questions after a presentation on the budget is made.
The school portion of the average homeowner’s tax bill could increase $205 if the budget is approved as currently constructed. The tax levy, the portion of the budget that is funded by local property taxes, is about $132.2 million.
If everything remains as is, including programs and services, the district is looking at a $2.4 million budget shortfall.
The Board of Education approved a tentative budget last month. The district will receive approximately $3.8 million in state aid this year, the same amount it received last year.
Officials are still working on the budget. The Board of Education will approve the budget at a special public meeting March 27.
About 25 people attended the first public meeting at Wayne Hills High School a few weeks ago.
