Get Informed About the Proposed FY24 Budget

stay informed about the proposed budget
Dear Champlain Valley School District Community Members and Voters,

CVSD’s Board of Directors is reaching out to you with information about the proposed FY24 budget. We hope that you’ll take the time to read this message and will access additional materials to get informed before voting. This is the first in a series of posts about the proposed budget and articles voters will see on the ballot.

Voters can cast early ballots or for those who prefer to vote in person, Tuesday, March 7, 2023, is your chance to vote on the 2023-2024 proposed CVSD Budget and school-related Articles.

As an informed voter, it is important to understand the significance of the proposed budget for the Champlain Valley School District. This year, the district has proposed a budget of $96,119,804, which represents an increase of 7.5% from the current year.

Despite these increased costs, the CVSD proposed budget is still 1.2% below the statewide average for equalized pupils and 1% below the state average spending increase. This demonstrates the district's commitment to being financially responsible while still providing the best possible education for its students.

The budget proposal takes into account various external forces, such as statewide and national healthcare increases, inflation, and a tight labor market. Despite these challenges, the Champlain Valley School District remains dedicated to supporting all students and providing a high-quality education.

By voting for the proposed budget, you are supporting the education of the students in the Champlain Valley School District. Investing in our future through education is a vital part of ensuring a strong and thriving community.

Please reach out to the CVSD School Board with any questions. or use the School Board or Budget Let’s Talk topics On behalf of the CVSD School Board, we appreciate your generous support.

Kind regards,

The CVSD Board of Directors
