The budget development process for 2010-11 continues in the Baldwinsville Central School District. The Board of Education and district administrators are carefully scrutinizing all areas of the budget.
Community collaboration is a vital element in the budget development process. Residents have the opportunity to express their concerns and suggestions regarding the budget by participating in budget discussions at Board of Education meetings. At board meetings from Jan. 25 to March 29, district administrators will present a different component of the budget to the board. At each meeting, the budget discussion will be open to the public for questions and comments after the Board's discussion.
Board meetings usually begin at 7 p.m. Mondays (check dates below) in the cafeteria of Durgee Junior High School. To confirm a meeting location, call the superintendent's office the day of the meeting at 638-6043.
