2018-19 Budget Questions
Q: If posting budget details it should be in a readable print size! Hopefully next time?
Q: Within this budget, what will the portion allocated to the arts within the district? Can you request from the director of finance arts a breakdown for budgetary allocations between 2017-18 and how this budget will affect the arts in the coming school year? Passing the budget obviously would allow for a increase in all departments, including facility improvements, but I'd like to know how and where the portion for arts will be affected, and if the increases would be sufficient to increase productivity and student success within the arts here in washingtonville.
A: In the 2018-19 school budget the projected spending for the arts, which includes art and music in all buildings, is just over $3M. As a side note, Superintendent Reese was just recognized for his support of the arts by the New York State Theatre Education Association as the Administrator of the Year.
