The Bedford Central School District Board of Education adopted the budget for the 2014-2015 school year which begins July 1. There will be a public hearing on May 7 and the budget vote is May 20th from 7 am until 9 pm.
Based on budget goals, guiding principles, and budget guidelines, this budget retains all programs for students, class size average targets, and student activities. There are staffing cuts of some positions and cuts to non-staff materials and services not directly related to instruction.
As in previous years, this budget is the six consecutive budget with a tax levy lower than 2% or below the “tax” cap since it was instituted. The tax levy increase for this budget is 1.41% and the budget to budget increase is 1.15%.
