Districts vote on DCMO BOCES budget Monday

NORTH NORWICH – The school boards of each of the 16 districts which comprise the Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego BOCES will vote on the cooperative education organization’s 2011-12 administrative budget Monday.

Totaling $2.14 million, the proposed budget includes a $8,393, or .4 percent, reduction in spending from the current year’s budget, according to DCMO BOCES Superintendent Bill Tammaro.

Despite the decrease in overall spending in the administrative budget, schools will be picking up a larger share this year. The amount each district pays is calculated based on their Resident Weighted Average Daily Attendance (RWADA), which measures the size of a district based on attendance. Although some schools may actually see a decrease because of the RWADA ratio, on average component districts will see a 1.45 percent increase over last year, reported Assistant Superintendent of Management Services Doreen Rowe.

The BOCES budget is comprised of three components: administrative, capital and program. The administrative portion is the only one which districts vote on directly. They “vote” on the other two by selecting services, Rowe explained.
