Horseheads & C-PP Pass School Budgets
Both Districts Pass Their Multi-Million Dollar 2012-13 Budgets
For the first time since the 2008-09 school year, the district will see an increase in state aid by about 4.5 percent. Next year's budget calls for the elimination of 10 positions, 14 district position replacments at lower salaries and reductions in several areas including unemployment insurance and workers compensation.
CORNING -- Corning Painted Post school district leaders passed next year's nearly $88 million budget tonight, which calls for more than a hundred staff reductions or cuts.
Those job cuts would be made across the district. And under next year's planned budget, the C-PP district would no longer run the pre-school program. Next year's budget calls for a less than one percent increase to spending, but would raise property taxes in the district by 1.78 percent, right at their cap.
Southern Tier residents will vote on their respective budgets on Tuesday, May 15th.
