The Citizens Advisory Committee on Finance (CACF) unanimously supports the proposed Manhasset School District Budget of $81,094,279 for the year 2009-2010. The budget represents an increase of 0.87 percent over the prior year. The CACF, which is comprised of 12 residents of Manhasset selected by the board of education, is responsible for advising the board on financial matters, specifically on the annual school budget.
Once again, we note with appreciation the transparency of the budget process and the wealth of financial information made available by the administration. The proposed year-over-year increase of only 0.87 percent is quite an achievement, taking into account that: (i) there are an additional 66 students projected to be enrolled in the district for the next school year, (ii) all current instructional programs will be continued, (iii) there will be no increase in the class size guidelines, and (iv) all extra-curricular and interscholastic athletic programs will be maintained at this year’s levels.
