Scarsdale schools staffing enrollment image

With about 80% of the district’s budget relating to staffing costs — salaries, benefits and associated costs make up the “lion’s share of our spending,” according to interim superintendent Dr. Drew Patrick — the Scarsdale Schools budget presentations kicked off with the estimated enrollment and staffing needs on Monday, Jan. 9.

Patrick called it a “means to an end and that end is educating our students.” He also said the drivers at each level are keeping class sizes of no more than 22 for grades K-3 and no more than 24 in grades 4-5, as well as preserving the house and team structure at the middle school and the broad range of course offerings at the high school.
