June 2019 Update - Board Approves 2019-2020 General Fund Budget

The Central York School District Board of School Directors on Monday, June 17, 2019, approved the 2019-2020 Central York School District General Fund Budget.

The 2019-2020 General Fund Budget includes a tax increase of 2.00% in local real estate taxes. There is an increase projected for State Basic Education Funding and Special Education Funding based on the current Governor’s proposal.

The total proposed budgeted revenue of $92,761,137 is an increase of $3,598,081 or 4.04% over the 2018-2019 budget. 

The total proposed expenditures for the 2019-2020 fiscal year are $92,954,959. This is an increase of $3,796,431 or 4.26% over 2018-2019.

The proposed budget Does include a transfer to the Capital Reserve Account of $300,000. Expenses exceed revenue. This would provide a deficit budget of -$193,822 in the attached budget proposal and would use District’s PSERS reserved fund balance. This would result in a total projected available fund balance of $6,101,119 at the end of 2019-20.

The Budget Forecasting Tool is a resource that can be used to create projected future budget scenarios based on a number of possible variables. Central York School District uses this tool to create possible budget projections based on changes to tax rates, PSERS funding and other items that may impact school district budgets. Please note that this tool is not based on known figures for the future, as many of these items could change due to a wide range of circumstances.
