2023 Articles on the CVSD Ballot


This is another post in a series to update you on the upcoming 2023-2024 proposed school district budget. 

In our previous post, we provided voters with information about the school district’s proposed budget. In addition to seeing the ballot article about the proposed budget, voters will also see these additional articles on the ballot.

Article VIII – The FUND BALANCE QUESTION: this question requests permission from the taxpayers to spend reserved money to offset budget increases. FY24 Article VIII asks: Shall the voters of the Champlain Valley School District authorize the Board of School Directors to allocate $600,000 of the school district's current fund balance as revenue for the 2023-2024 operating budget and assign the remaining balance as revenue for future budgets?

Article IX - The BUS QUESTION: This question asks taxpayers to approve the District’s need to borrow funds for bus purchases. The article gives the District authorization to borrow up to $395,000 to maintain our fleet. This year it is proposed that we purchase three new buses to replace older buses. (These older models are 12-15 years old and each has more than 170,000 miles on the odometer).

We hope this is helpful information for you.
