Penn Yan school budget reduces positions

Penn Yan Central School officials are still working on a budget proposal for the 2017-18 school year, and plan to have a final plan ready for board of education approval on April 12.

The plan that was reviewed with the board March 22 calls for $35.17 million in spending, a 1.52 percent increase, and a total tax levy of $18.14 million, a 1.79 percent increase.

The budget calls for the elimination of one Social Studies teacher position at the academy by not filling a vacancy from a retirement, for a savings of $75,000. Also, an LPN will be laid off due to BOCES reorganization, but that will not result in any savings for the district.

Savings of $8,000 is expected by reducing half of a shared BOCES tech coordinator position, and another $75,000 will be saved through changes in how the DRIVE program staff will be paid.
