The Manhasset Board of Education met Thursday evening to discuss how to make up for an estimated $1 million budget gap in the next school year.
During a Feb. 1 meeting, district officials say part of the problem stems from growing benefits expenses. There’s also a concern that the district could see less Foundation Aid funding in the next school year.
Marianna Bruno has four children in the district. She says she loves the community there but wants to learn more about how the district is addressing curriculum concerns as well as the current funding deficiencies.
“How are we going to manage through that? Where are our expenses really coming from? Where can we manage those expenses if we are going to have a deficit? And I think it's just understanding that and that's part of the reason why I came out tonight," she said.
After the meeting, the superintendent told News 12 that the board is still figuring out how to manage the budget gaps.
The board will present next year's preliminary budget during their March 7 meeting.
