• The Starpoint Central School District Board of Education has begun the budget process for the 2023-24 school year.  The Board of Education is committed to designing a school budget that meets the educational needs of the students as well as the financial needs of the community.

    The Board of Education began the 2023-24 budget process by adopting the budget calendar (shown below) and the following budget goals at the November 14th, 2022 Board of Education Meeting:

    • Provide a fiscally prudent school budget that addresses the educational needs of the Starpoint children and at the same time is mindful of the cost to district residents and meets the Mission, Mission and Core Values identified in the Starpoint Blue Print for Success.
    • Continue to provide the MOST cost effective educational plan in Niagara County for the residents of the Starpoint Central School District.
    • Provide facilities for students, employees, and community that are safe, well maintained, and conducive to the activities of the district.
    • Provide an expenditure and revenue plan that is child/student centered and consistent with the educational plan of the district.
    • Provide a staffing plan driven by higher academic standards, increased district enrollment, and the implementation of academic and remedial services.
    • Provide a staff development plan necessary to meet the new learning standards established by the State of New York.
    • Effectively communicate the educational program needs of the school district to ensure that district residents have a good knowledge of the district’s expenditure plan.
    • Continue to identify and implement cost-saving measures that reduce the impact on taxes for the residents of the District.
    • Develop a budget that will address the multitude of issues presented by Covid-19 and continue to keep Starpoint schools a safe and healthy environment for students, faculty and staff.
