Ms. Lori Orologio, 293-1800 ext. 2300,

Dear Community,

The Board of Education, administration and the employees of Churchville-Chili have worked hard to develop a budget for the 2015-16 school year that will result in a minimal tax impact on our community members and continue to provide quality educational programs for all students.

In preparing this budget we have focused on the following:

• Keeping the tax levy within property tax cap calculations.

• Meeting all applicable mandate, health, safety, and legal requirements.

• Supporting Educational programs and services vital to successful implementation of District goals.

• Identifying alternate funding sources and cost saving measures.

The budget development is taken very seriously and we have spent a great deal of time reviewing all expenditures, looking for efficiencies and cost saving measures, and assessing staff adequacies. As a result, the Board of Education and the District have developed what we believe to be a fiscally sound budget to present to the community on May 19.

The budget adopted by the Board of Education on April 14, reflects an increase of 2.81% over last year’s budget and would mean a 1.9% increase in the tax levy which is below the district’s levy cap of 2.24%. This budget would result in a maximum tax rate increase of 1.29% in the towns of Ogden, Sweden and Chili and a .70% tax rate decrease in the town of Riga's equalization rate going to 100%.

Detailed budget information can be found here.  

Complete budget documents are available in each of the school buildings and at our district office. We appreciate your involvement in many of our school district events throughout the year. We hope you will take the opportunity to vote on May 19.
