Pittsford Residents For PCSD Fiscal Responsibility

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


We believe that the Pittsford Central School District  and their Board of Education were fiscally irresponsible with regard to the 2017-2018 school budget.

We believe that there needs to be an in depth and careful review of all financial records and the budget development process to ensure that it is sufficiently comprehensive, forward-looking and that the proposed budgets and forecasts can be relied on by voters to be reasonably accurate.

We believe that Full-Day Kindergarten should only be included in the school budget when the District can afford its proper implementation, when it can be supported without a tax-cap override and/or the need to use reserves, and will not have any impact on current students' programs or services.

We believe it's the primary responsibility of the District to present a clear, long-term plan for the financial sustainability of our schools.

Our goal is to provide the District with evidence of the community’s concern over the apparent fiscal irresponsibility witnessed to date. 

The District has not shown or demonstrated, through facts or projections, that it has a long-term fiscally responsible plan to sustain strong programs and services for the students. 

We ask the District to consider our concerns seriously and act in an appropriate and fiscally responsible manner moving forward.

This petition will be presented to the District on Friday, May 19th before a new budget is proposed.
