HUDSON — The Hudson City School District could be facing a shortfall of about $2.177 million for next school year’s budget, and the district’s administrators are beginning a reach out effort to get feedback from the community.
The district’s School Business Executive Robert Yusko outlined the challenge this week, detailing a proposed rollover budget of $43.3 million, which would represent an increase in spending of $1.76 million over the budgeted amount for this year’s spending, or a 4.24 percent increase. That takes into account salary increases, rising pension costs and health insurance premium increases. However, Yusko is projecting actual spending for this year to be $1.76 million under the budgeted amount based on a presentation made to the Board of Education and provided to the Register-Star this week. About a million dollars of that is due to a savings in contractual expenditures this year.
