The Gloversville Enlarged School District will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 6 PM in the Gloversville School District Board Room located at 234 Lincoln St., Gloversville, NY. The hearing will be live-streamed and questions will be allowed via the district’s Facebook page. On Tuesday, May 17, residents of the district will be asked to consider a $70,827,217 budget for the 2022-2023 school year and the purchase of three (3) 66-passenger school buses and one (1) plow truck from the Bus Purchase and Vehicle Capital Reserve fund. The bus and vehicle purchases will have no financial impact on the general fund budget or the tax levy but are still subject to voter approval. The polls will be open for in-person voting between 11 AM and 8 PM at the Gloversville High School and the Bleecker Town Hall. The proposed budget represents an increase of 5.3% or $3,564,334. This is due in large part to the increase in students needing special education services. There are twelve new positions included within this proposed budget. The funding for these new positions comes from retirements, resignations, elimination of services from BOCES and other outside agencies and Federal stimulus money. Transportation costs are increasing due to the cost of fuel and the need to contract with private companies to transport our students to programs outside of the district. Fringe benefits costs have risen slightly, but health insurance is decreasing as the premiums are decreasing and the employee share to participate in health insurance is increasing. Debt service, which is the principal and interest payments due for the outstanding debt has increased by approximately $650,000. Revenue to fund this proposed budget comes from State Aid in the amount of $48,874,028, the tax levy of $15,715,090, other miscellaneous revenues of $3,093,838, a transfer from the debt service reserve fund of $1,690,500 and the appropriation of $1,453,761 of fund balance. The tax levy will increase by $224,736 or 1.45% as determined by the NYS property tax cap calculation.

Developing the annual school budget is a year-round process that involves the Gloversville Board of Education and district and school leaders. On the third Tuesday of each May, that process concludes when the public votes on a school budget proposal for the following year and elects candidates to the Board of Education.
