GEORGETOWN – The Otselic Valley Central School District Board of Education, joined by approximately 20 community members and faculty, unanimously approved the 2010-2011 school budget. The district is facing a 5.89 percent reduction in state aid due to Governor David A. Paterson’s proposed $328,389 in cuts.
Interim Superintendent Linda Taylor reported that the board had made “minimal changes” to the budget since the last budget workshop on March 31.
“We tried, successfully I think, to maintain our instructional program while minimizing the effects on taxpayers,” stated Taylor. “All of our early planning and preparation really helped us to get through this and this was a cooperative effort.”
