Executive Summary 
The 2014-15 budget presented herein represents a collaborative effort between all departments of the Buffalo City School District (the “District”)
and takes into account the Superintendent’s Strategic Plan and priorities finalized in 2013-14. Each year the District continues to face major
structural deficits that must be closed while prioritizing the budget goals of adequately staffing schools and maintaining direct services to
students. This task has become increasingly challenging each and every year. Fortunately, the District received significant relief with the adoption
of the state budget and was able to reduce the $36 million deficit it had at the time the budget was adopted by $18.5 million. The Western New
York Delegation is to be commended for both the aid increases and legislative changes that will positively impact the District in 2014-15 and
beyond.
Overall, the 2014-15 budget is increasing $12.6 million above the 2013-14 budget and full time employees (FTE) are increasing by 77 primarily all
at the school level.
Major budgetary investments were made to the Superintendent’s priority of extended learning time for students by increasing the General Funds
allocation by $3.0 million to a total cost of $4.7 million. The budget was also increased $.2 million to support the continued expansion of physical
education for elementary students.

In reviewing the budget it is important to remember that the District must adopt a budget that is timely and uses the best assumptions available
at the time. The budget is an estimate. The budget process includes making reasonable assumptions and estimates that allow the District to
achieve its goals while protecting against budget deficits. Adjustments can be made at a later date if significant changes to the estimates or
assumptions occur.

Budget Trends:  
Since 2008-09, the final year the District received state
aid increases in accordance with the State’s Four Year
Educational Investment Plan, total General Fund
Expenditures have increased $135.9 million. Of that total,
$38.2 million is for debt service related to the District’s
five phase $1.4 billion reconstruction program that is over
93% funded by building aid from New York State.
Therefore, the remaining increase across all other
categories totals $97.7 million. However, as indicated in
the graph to the right, the growth relates to costs
primarily beyond the Districts control. Even though
employee compensation has decreased $3.0 million,
employee and retiree benefits (health insurance and
pension) have increased $57.9 million over the same time
period. Tuition payments to charter schools have
increased $31.1 million. At the same time, state aid
exclusive of building aid has increased only $19.1 million. Given that the District is 82% dependent on state aid, has no authority to raise its own
taxes and has not received an increase in revenue from the City of Buffalo since 2006-07, this is a very alarming trend. The District has been
using fund balance reserves and cutting costs to close the annual deficits caused by these revenue and expenditure trends.
Budgetary Goals
Despite persistent operating deficits, the District has annually accomplished its budgetary goals of maintaining the integrity of the classroom and
minimizing cuts that could impact direct services to students. In fact, the District has been able to invest in certain areas over that time. The chart
below shows the major functional areas that have both increased and decreased staff since 2008-09:

Functional Area
Positions (Reduced)/ Added
And Percent of Staff Changes
Central Services (IT, Plant, Mail) (39.5) =(13%)
Finance (16) =(25%)
Transportation (8) =(19%)
Human Resources (5.5) =(16%)
Pupil Support Services (Attendance,
Guidance, Social Workers)
+53 =+60%
Occupational Education (CTE) +24 =+10%

The 2014-15 General Fund Budget is based on the following baseline assumptions:
Enrollment:
The current year PK-12 District enrollment totals 34,465 and is projected to be 34,700 next year. Charter enrollment is expected to be 7,600 for
15 schools at a total cost of $98 million with a per pupil tuition increase of $250 for 2014-15.
Revenues:
 State aid is based on the adopted State Budget
 The District will not use Unassigned Fund Balance to fund operations
 $10.2 million of Assigned Fund Balance will be appropriated to balance the budget as follows:
o $5.6 million assigned for Other Post Employment and Employee Benefits will be used to pay for the increase in Teachers
Retirement System rates.
o $4.2 million assigned for prior year claims related to collective bargaining contracts
o $.35 million assigned for capital needs will be used to establish a capital project to fund computer purchases
 Sales tax receipts will increase 5.7% ($2.2 million) based on the trend and regional projections

Expenditures:
 Single salary step increment is included for 2014-15; no other pay raises for the upcoming year except for those in current collective
bargaining agreements
 District will obtain health insurance savings through clinical edits implemented through the carrier’s regular course of business and other
changes in accordance with the Affordable Care Act by J anuary 1, 2015
 All vacant positions shall be evaluated to determine alternative service delivery options. Positions must be proven critical to district
operations and approved by the Superintendent prior to being filled
 Master scheduling support shall be provided to schools to ensure that courses and staff are scheduled effectively and efficiently and under
rolled classes will be closed
 Prior to the placement of students at schools that would require the opening of a new classroom or hiring of additional staff, the
Placement Office must work with the curriculum departments and schools and obtain the Superintendent’s approval
 Building Usage assumptions in the budget are as follows: 
o Schools 40 and 44 will be moved to School 4; 40 and 44 will be closed 
o Middle Early College will co-locate with Math Science Preparatory 
o Annex #115 will merge into Harvey Austin
o Swing School 78 will be closed 
o The department staff in School 28 will be moved to School 187; School 28 will closed 
o 18A (Parent Center) will be closed and parent rooms will be set up in School 187 
o Schools 8 and 171 will suspend operations (minimal operation costs)

School Based Budgeting:
The 2014-15 Budget is the second year of the school based budgeting process. Schools were provided baseline staffing based on the ratios
established and outlined in the Budget Handbook which can be found on the webpage for the Finance Department. Staff is still centrally assigned
for Occupational and Vocational Programs, English Language Learners (ELL), Special Education and Related Services, Student Support Teams and
Attendance. Schools not receiving supplemental funds via School Improvement Grants were then allocated supplemental flexible funds on a per
pupil basis for students identified in the categories below. A student can be counted twice. Additionally, schools with grades K-8 received
additional staffing for visual arts or music programs and schools whose SIG funds expired in 2012-13 or 2013-14 will receive transitional funding.
For 2014-15, the amounts allocated are as follows: 
   
 
Level 1

Closing the Deficit
Over the past four months, several changes in projections and specific actions were taken to close the budget deficit. Those changes are outlined
below.
2014-15 DEFICIT REDUCTION AND INVESTMENT PLAN
($$$ in millions)
Projected 2014-15 Operating Deficit J anuary 29, 2014: ($49.7)
Investments in Academic Programs in support of the Strategic Plan:
Investment Description/ Discussion $$$
A. Extended Learning Time Costs for Extended Learning Time Programs including contracts for
Community Based Organizations, additional hours for teachers,
administrators and building custodial staff totaling $3.0 million
($3.0)

Revised budget deficit to close after investments: ($52.9)

Page 5 of 70
  
Specific major actions to close the budget deficit and discussion or descriptions as appropriate are as follows:
Action Description/ Discussion $$$
1. Use of Assigned Fund Balance See the revenue assumption on fund balance above. $10.2
2. Legislative Budget - State Aid Increases
and relief in per pupil tuition for charter
school students
$18.5
3. Central Office and Departmental
Reductions
The Superintendent directed departments to cut 10% from their central
office budgets to ensure the goal of keeping cuts as far from the
classroom as possible.
$4.4
4. Facilities See the expenditure assumptions on facilities above. $2.9
5. Health care savings for both employees
and retirees
District will obtain health insurance savings through retirees leaving the
health plan as part of a retirement incentive, clinical edits implemented
through the carriers regular course of business and other changes in
accordance with the Affordable Care Act by J anuary 1, 2015
$4.7
6. Right-sizing student to staff ratios by
implementing staffing standards for
Integrated Co-Teachers (ICTs)
Upon review of the student to teacher ratios for ICTs, it was found that
a total of 131 teachers had student loads of three or less. It is
recommended that whenever possible, the ICT serve at least 5 students
$7.4
7. Maintain the current staffing model for
personal care aides of 12:1+3:1 and
ensure the use of 1:1 aides be reserved
only for cases where data supports the
need
Upon review of the placement of personal care aides, it was noted that
the current staffing model was not being used and personal care aides
were assigned outside the parameters of the model
$.6
8. Reduction in other employee benefits Based on both the trend for the expenditures, retirements and adjusted
salaries in the budget, a reduction is being projected in unemployment
costs, termination pay and social security
$2.2
9. Reduction in the contingency account The initial deficit included a contingency of $5.0 million to cover
unanticipated costs, such as those imposed upon the District after the
fiscal year started in 2013-14. That amount has been reduced to $3.0
million
$2.0

Revised budget deficit after actions to close the deficit $0

Teachers 2,810.7       24.6 2,835.3 0.9% 67.8%
Additions: 124 teachers were added for the annexation of the former Pinnacle Charter School (42 
FTE); additional special education teachers (40); opening of classrooms for public school choice 
(8); net other additions of 34 for not realizing reductions in 2013‐14, 2014‐15 baseline staffing 
allocations and an increase in Physical Education.  Reductions: It is estimated that a total of 85 
staff can be reduced based on the combination of implementing standards and right‐sizing 
Integrated Co‐Teachers (ICT) student to staffing ratios and the closure of some under enrolled 
classes with the assistance of a master scheduler. The ICT recommendations are based on both 
an internal review and one performed by the Council of Great City Schools that found 131 ICT's 
were serving 3 or fewer students.  A reduction of 14 teachers are estimated for the merger of 
#115 and #97.
Administrators (Union) 173.0           25.5 198.5 14.7% 4.7%
Schools added 27.5 positions as part of their school based budgeting process, including Deans of

White Collar 356.9           (2.8) 354.1 ‐0.8% 8.5%
There was an addition of 4 positions that had been budgeted in grants in 13‐14, but they were 
never transferred to grants from the general fund. Those increases are offset by the reduction of 
6.8 positions in finance, operations and school clerical based on school based budgeting 
decisions.
Teacher Aides 279.0           82.4 361.4 29.5% 8.6%
Due to a shortage in Teaching Assistants, 53.4 Aides were added in exchange for Assistants.  
During 13‐14, an additional 35.4 were added for Special Education, 4 pool aides, 1 aide for STAR 
Academy and 3.6 within school based budgets were also added. These increases are offset by the 
anticipated reduction of 15 from implementing the current staffing model for personal care 
aides.
Teaching Assistants 291.0           (53.4) 237.6 ‐18.4% 5.7%
Due to a shortage in Teaching Assistants, 53.4  Aides were added in exchange for Assistants.

The addition is for the Claims Auditor position who would report to the Board of Education. 
These duties are required by law and are currently performed under a contract. There is also a 
vacant legal counsel position being eliminated, which is offset by an increase for a position based 
on the reorganization plan being finalized after the budget was adopted.

The Food Service Fund totals $27.6 million for 2014‐15.  There are three components within the fund:
1. The Food Service Program provides breakfast, lunch, snacks, and after school meals to Buffalo Public School 
students, some Charter School students (Academy of Science, Aloma D. Johnson Fruit Belt, Buffalo Hearing 
and Speech, West Buffalo , Elmwood Village, King Center, and South Buffalo), three non‐public (St. Augustine, 
St. Monica, and Autistic Services) and two out‐of‐district charter schools (Niagara Charter in Niagara Falls and 
Baker Academy in Lackawanna), in accordance with USDA regulations and is primarily fueled by the federal 
government and meat sales. 
2. The Emerson School of Hospitality provides students with an academic program while focusing on career 
preparation in the food service and hospitality industries.  While Emerson’s budget is separate from the Food 
Service Program, federal dollars flow through the Food Service Program for the Child Nutrition Program, as 
administrators of the program, which feeds Emerson’s students. 
3. The Summer Food Service provides meal service to children during the summer months and is also federally 
funded.  They provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks to Summer School students and organizations, by request 
(i.e. Bible Schools, Day Camps).  Additionally, lunches are provided to Parks and Community Centers.

The Special Projects Fund accounts for grants received from state, federal and local sources and are 
intended to supplement services. Grant totals are currently estimated to total $115 million and include 
911 full time equivalents, but are adopted in accordance with grantor specifications and lapse upon 
completion of the programs. Therefore, these grant programs do not necessarily coincide with the 
Board’s fiscal year. Based on varying fiscal years and grantor guidelines, the grants budgets are not 
subject to the same board approval as regular funds; however their expenditures are still subject to 
board approval in accordance with board policy.
