Nassau BOCES Budget Passes

The budget for 2011-12 passed with 51 of 56 school districts in favor.

With 51 of 56 school Nassau County districts voting in favor, the Nassau BOCES 2011-12 budget has passed, the organization announced on Monday.

The Wantagh school district voted against the budget while Manhasset abstained from voting. Three school districts  – Garden City, Glen Cove and Roosevelt – did not vote on the budget, Nassau BOCES said.

The proposed administrative operations budget for the upcoming school year is $18,947,178, which is 2.8 percent higher than the current budget. The 2011-12 budget had a 1.1 percent decrease in expenditures in capital projects and facilities rentals, which are $9,602,816 in this year's budget.

In addition to passing the budget, three incumbent members of the BOCES board – Stephen Witt, president of the board from the Hewlett-Woodmere district; Eric Schultz of Plainview-Bethpage and Deborah Coates of East Meadow  – were re-elected to serve three-year terms.

"We intend to expand our efforts to improve internal efficiencies, focus on innovative programs that bolster the Long Island economy and workforce, and identify ways in which Nassau BOCES can leverage economies of scale to achieve savings for schools and other public entities," said Dr. Thomas Rogers, Nassau BOCES district superintendent, in a statement.
