Continuing Challenges for 2010/11 ƒ ƒ ƒ ƒ

Run an efficient system without negatively impacting programs for our students New York State’s economic crisis has not improved Governor’s Gap Elimination Plan would reduce our state aid by a net of $2.7 million. Proposed Mandate for Districts to fund a portion of all Pre-school special education and transportation costs. The program is currently fully funded by NYS and Suffolk County. This proposal is not included in the current budget.


Continuing Challenges for 2010/11 ƒ

ƒ

Proposed State funding for Summer Special Education reduced from 80% to 22.5% . If enacted, this proposal would cost the district approximately $673,000. This proposal is not included in the current budget. The MTA Tax, implemented for the 2009/10 school year, will continue in 2010/11. This will cost HHH over $400K and is included in the current budget proposal. To date no reimbursements have been received.

Factors that may affect Expenditure Budget „ The following proposed unfunded mandates are not included in the current budget proposal.

The State Aid Guessing Game „

As of this date we do not know the direction the Legislature will take in regard to the Governor’s proposal. The Governor’s proposal as is … ƒ Imposes a net $2.7 million Gap Elimination Adjustment ƒ Gap Elimination Adjustment could have been even worse: „

„

Administrative Efficiency Aid reduces this amount by $211,824 Federal Restoration (ARRA funds) return $1.7 million to the District through an application process and must adhere to strict use and reporting requirements

Administrative Efficiency „

„

The District may receive Administrative Efficiency Aid which offsets a portion of the GAP reduction. This aid is for districts with an Administrative Efficiency ratio (central office administration expense to total expenditures) of less than 2%. The Half Hollow Hills administrative efficiency ratio is 1.54%, the 9th lowest on Long Island. This aid could potentially return $211,824 in funding to the District for the 2010/11 school year


Safeguarding taxpayer dollars „

Positive NYS Comptrollers Audit! „

„

„

In 2009 only six (6) of the 200 audits conducted by the State Comptroller’s Office contained positive findings. Half Hollow Hills was one of the six and the only Long Island District. The NYS auditors found our system of controls were well designed and operating effectively.

Aa2 Moody’s Bond Rating for Half Hollow Hills CSD! „ Aa2 rating reflects the solid financial position and below average debt burden of the district, prudent budgeting practices and effective management of our reserves.


CONTINGENCY BUDGET WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THE DISTRICT? ƒ

Currently the contingency budget is -.04% which would require an additional $6.7 million in budget cuts.

ƒ

The State Legislature is considering a Bill which would use a 5 year average calculation in determining the contingency budget cap. This calculation would result in an approximate 3% contingency budget.

ƒ

Under a contingency budget spending constraints are imposed within the overall budget cap.
