The district’s FY25 budget is more challenging than recent years. Overall inflation has created increased costs for services, including student transportation, utilities, and tuition for out-of-district students. The cost of collective bargaining agreements settled in recent months beyond what the district budgeted is also a significant factor. These factors combined create a $2.7 million deficit in the school department budget. The school budget for FY25 is $103,335,959.
