2019-2020 Preliminary General Fund Budget

During the December 3, 2018 Planning Meeting, the Central York School District Administration presented the Preliminary 2019-2020 General Fund Budget as required by the state. The School Board will vote on the Preliminary General Fund Budget December 10, 2018.

A copy of the December 3 Presentation is included below, along with a copy of the Preliminary 2019-2020 General Fund Budget. 

The maximum tax increase could be 2.9% as allowed by the Act 1 Index for 2019-2020. The Administration has proposed that the Board adopt the Act 1 Index Resolution stating the District will not raise taxes above the allowed Act 1 Index. The resolution also states that the District will not seek any Exceptions or Referendums.

The School Board and Administration will hold public Budget Workshops in April 2019, and present a proposed 2019-2020 General Fund Budget in May 2019, with the intent to adopt a final budget in June 2019, as required by state law.  

Throughout the coming months, the School Board and Administration will continue to review the Preliminary 2019-2020 General Fund Budget, and will work with stakeholders including residents, parents/guardians, faculty and staff to prepare for a final budget in the Spring of 2019. 

The documents below include: The Preliminary 2019-2020 General Fund Budget and a public Budget Presentation shared with the School Board on December 3, 2018. In addition, the Budget Forecasting Tool used by Central York School District has been included for your use and reference. 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. 



CYSD School Board Adopts 2018-2019 Budget 

Central York School District Board of School Directors adopted the 2018-2019 General Fund Budget during its June 18, 2018 Public Action Meeting.

The 2018-2019 General Fund Budget includes allocations for planned expenditures of $89,158.528 and a tax increase of 3.0% in local real estate taxes. 

The total proposed budgeted revenue of $89,163,056 is an increase of $2,813,295 or 3.26% over the 2017-2018 budget.

The total proposed expenditures for the 2018-2019 fiscal year are $89,158,528. This is an increase of $1,658,718 or 1.90% over 2017-2018.

The proposed budget Does include a transfer to the Capital Reserve Account of $500,000.

Revenues exceed expenses. This would provide a small surplus budget of $4,528 in the attached budget proposal and would increase the District’s fund balance.

*The district is currently in negotiations and no increase in wages was built into the budget for 2018-19. The impact to the budget is unknown at this time.
