Bronxville Schools Budget Process Underway

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Bronxville Board of Education is just getting started examining the proposed 2012-13 budget.

If adopted in its current form, residents will see a 1.5 percent tax increase. There is no word yet on what that increase translates into in terms of real tax dollars. 

"So far so good," said Superintendent of Bronxville Schools Dr. David Quattrone on Thursday. "We fall below the 2 percent tax cap without any loss of staff or programs." 

The proposed budget to operate the district’s three schools, which are housed in one building, is $44,441,945, which is $837,761 higher than the current year’s spending plan. 

If the board chooses, it could opt to make cuts in the budget increase of $837,761 which would mean cutting roughly nine staffers or eliminating some programs. 

But while Quattrone notes the decision is in the hands of the seven-member board of education, he is optimistic that the board will continue staffing at its current level. 

He added that the board will meet again in March for another session to review the budget and a proposed budget will be completed in April. 

The budget will be adopted by the board and put before voters on May 15.
