Proposition Amount = $1,305,400
Proposed # of Buses = 14 and 1 Suburban (14 trade-ins)
State Transportation Aid = $1,137,003
Local Share = $168,397
Local Share per bus = $11,226
Tax increase for a $100,000 home = $3.10/year


The district will have a proposition to purchase replacement school buses on the ballot May 15 in an amount not to exceed $1,305,400. The proposition includes purchasing 14 buses, one suburban and trading in 14 buses. If approved, the district will purchase nine large buses, five small buses and one suburban. With the purchase of buses annually, the district will continue to have the fleet of nearly 100 buses on a 10-year replacement schedule.

Brockport receives approximately 87.1 percent state transportation aid on school bus purchases which means the district will receive $1,137,003 in aid with the remaining $168,397 local share being financed over five years ($33,680 each year). The impact of $33,680 on the levy is approximately $0.03 per thousand of assessed value or $3.10/year on a $100,000 home.
