Budget Development

District leaders remain committed to developing a budget that remains within the tax cap, as it has for the past five years, while also maintaining opportunities for all students.

As the district provides services to an increasing number of students with special needs, some costs have increased accordingly. To minimize increases to the tax levy, the district will use $69,279 from the Fund Balance and $50,000 from Reserves.

The Corinth Board of Education and administration have also worked to contain spending and maintain a fiscally responsible budget over the past three years, because of this Corinth was removed from the New York State Comptroller’s Office fiscal stress list this year. Their continued efforts have also reduced the district’s deficit from $1 million to $129,000 over the course of three school years while continuing to grow student opportunities.


In addition to the proposed budget, the May 21 ballot included two additional propositions:

  • The purchase of school buses for a total not to exceed $245,000
  • Funding for the Corinth Free Library
