Valley Tech FY18 Budget Approved

The Blackstone Valley Vocational Regional School District FY18 operating budget presented at the BVT School Committee meeting on June 15 confirmed unanimous approval of the district's request by its 13 member towns during annual town meetings across the district. The district town's relatively low average per pupil tax assessment of $10,357 to its voc tech system is just one of the reasons the 13 towns unanimously supported BVT's budget.

Blackstone's school committee member Joe Broderick referred to his town's contribution of less than $9,000 for each of its BVT enrollees as one of the best deals in the state.

This year, the district was able to successfully negotiate a more favorable rate structure with the low bidder on its bus contract, began implementing tour fees for the many out-of-state visitors seeking to know more about the system's award-winning programs, and completed collective bargaining with its teachers' association which included a 1.6 percent salary increase for FY18 and employee contributions toward the district's OPEB pension obligation.

BVT also negotiated an ongoing agreement with Milford Regional Medical Center to facilitate state funding support for the School Based Health Center, and recently completed an analysis of its copier use to drive those costs down. Other sample efficiencies include use of student and staff expertise for on-campus maintenance and improvements and innovative compensatory/flex time arrangements which enable the system to provide additional services to students without increasing personnel costs.

BVT offers a 193 teaching day year to its 1,250+ candidates. The system is one of the few in Massachusetts which has experienced continuous student growth in its enrollment.
