Superintendent Budget Letter 2016-2017
2016-2017 School BudgetI am pleased to present the 2016-2017 budget to the community. The budget we are bringing forward is one that builds on the strong traditions of the Tenafly Public Schools and provides a plan for the next school year that maintains low class size, upgrades our facilities and technology, and provides new programs for our students. Although state aid is $439,734 less than it was six years ago in the 2009-2010 school year, we have been successful in managing district funds in a way that increases revenue, decreases expenses and increases shared services. This has been our goal for the past 4 years and will continue to serve the district well in the future.
Lynn Trager, Superintendent of Schools
The success of our planning and budgeting has enabled us to provide the means to create educational opportunities for our students which give them the necessary tools to help each student become successful contributors in the 21st Century. In the end this is a budget that balances the needs of our students and provides them with a progressive educational program with a fiscally responsible budget approach.
