FY 2016-2017 School Budget Information
In order to facilitate a more transparent budget process, Washington Central Supervisory Union is using this page to post budgetary information for the residents of our five towns. The budget preparation cycle starts in late September, with each school starting with budget development. In October, each board gives budget direction to the administration. During the months of November, December and January the Boards in Washington Central worked on the budgets and solicited input from the community through public forums.
In the budget development process, we rely on multiple pieces of information to anticipate the final expenditures and tax rates. During the month of November, we receive the maximum increase for health insurance, during December we receive the state base amount per pupil, the estimated state tax rate increase, our Equalized Pupil Numbers and the Common Level of Appraisal. As we receive these figures, our budgets and estimated tax rates will become more precise.
