Board reviews projected 2018-19  expenses

At its meeting Jan. 9, the Williamsville Board of Education received an overview of next year's projected expenses as the 2018-19 budget development process gets underway.

According to Superintendent Scott Martzloff the district's mission and beliefs set the parameters for budget priorities and serve to guide the process. "Where are we looking to go in terms of how we educate our children? Part of doing that is looking at our budget," he said.

Mr. Thomas Maturski, Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Management Services, detailed the cost to continue all current programming. He also presented several program support items and the projected expense associated with each for the board's consideration.

According to Mr. Maturski, to keep all programs intact and add the program supports, as presented, the estimated 2018-19 budget would total $193.5 million, which represents a budget to budget increase of just under four percent.

The first look at the revenue outlook, including estimated state aid and the state tax cap, will be discussed at the Feb. 13 meeting.  

The January 9, 2018 meeting video and School Board Notes are posted online.
