SCSD budget development objective
To sustain the fiscal capacity of the school district in order to adequately provide for the programs and services for our students, not only for next year, but for years well into the future.
Budget Development Calendar
While certain times of the year see increased budget-related activity, developing a budget that both meets the needs of our students and reflects local residents’ input is a yearlong process. As such, the community is welcome and encouraged to participate in this process. The Budget Development Calendar lists the various steps in the process, as well as key dates.
Qualifications to register to vote with Schoharie CSD are as follows:
- You are a citizen of the United States
- You are at least 18 years of age
- You are a resident of the district for at least thirty (30) days prior to the vote date
- You are not a convicted felon
- You are not in jail or on parole for a felony conviction
- You are not adjudged by a court to be mentally incompetent
Following budget adoption, the district will make the proposed budget available to the public, hold a budget hearing (which will take place remotely), and mail a budget notice to all residents after the budget hearing. This procedure is no different than other years except for the hearing being held remotely.
