Report: Three Village School Officials Begin Planning for Next Year's Budget

Board president: "If you thought last year's was hard, then wait until this year."

Three Village school officials are predicting a 6.4 percent increase in spending in next year's school budget but will come up against a shortfall of approximately $8.7 million, according to a report published Thursday in The Village Times Herald.

According to that report, spending increases will be tied to a contractual increase in teacher salaries that will fall between 1.75 and 2.5 percent; increases in unemployment insurance, health benefits, and retirement contributions; $1 million in special education cost increases; and other areas.

"We've already started this budget process much earlier than we have before, because we know we are up against the wall with this," board President Jeffrey Kerman said in the report. "If you thought last year's was hard, then wait until this year."
