SCHENEVUS, NY – A recent report from the state comptroller’s office lists the Schenevus Central School District as being in "significant financial distress.”

At Tuesday’s school board meeting, school superintendent Theresa Carlin told those in attendance that the school is operating under a $700,000 budget deficit.

Parents and taxpayers want to know how this could have happened.

“We used our fund balance over the last several years and we are at pretty much a zero level balance,” said Carlin.
“Unfortunately the money we used last year to pay for our expenses is no longer there.”

“It’s inexcusable on a 9.2 million dollar budget that we voted on last May, to have to borrow that kind of money and use up that much fund balance,” said former school board member Tim Green who attended the meeting.

Green said the board members who he feels are responsible for the shortfall should step down.

He plans on presenting a petition asking for the resignation of those board members at the next school board meeting on March 12.

He did not immediately say which board members they were.
