In collaboration with OSSU administration, our school board has worked to increase transparency in the budget process through better detailed budget information and the opportunity for voters to impact the budget discussion at appropriate and timely stages in the process.
The budget development process for FY18 (2017-18) has begun. We encourage community members to remain involved, and there are still many ways to learn about the budget before the vote, including attending any of our board meetings or the FY18 Budget Public Informational Hearing.
Scope of Wolcott Town School Board Budget
Our board is responsible for the Wolcott Elementary School budget for Wolcott students in grades K-6. Students in grades 7-12 attend the secondary school of their choice. The town of Wolcott pays tuition to each receiving school. The tuition varies by school. Based on enrollment from previous years, the number of Wolcott students attending each secondary school is estimated for the current budget.
The Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union also maintains its own website. Information on the superintendent’s office, contact information, curriculum and assessment, human resources, and where to find more information can be found there.
