2021-22 Budget Information

The economic impact of the pandemic makes developing the 2021-22 budget highly uncertain  as school federal and state aid revenues are unknown and potentially subject to potential state and federal budget reductions. We expect the final budget to be much different than the recommended budget when revenue estimates become better known. However, at the current time and to the best extent possible, this budget is being developed with the goal of delivering high quality instruction to all students. The budget presentations will reflect priorities of the Honeoye Falls-Lima School Board of Education, align resources towards district initiatives on advancing student achievement, and targets investments connected to the district’s vision and mission.

Our vision is to be the district of choice for parents, families, students, educators, administrators, staff, and the community at large who believe education is the foundation for success.

We envision students engaged in relevant and rigorous instruction that includes cross-curricular learning, problem solving, innovative technologies, multi-cultural experiences, and the exploration of personal aspirations. As such, our students will be challenged to think creatively, critically, and independently. They will learn to solve problems efficiently, lead with passion and integrity, and communicate effectively.

To compliment this work, the strategic planning committee's strategic intents identify how, as a community, Honeoye Falls-Lima will continue to measure the success of the District. As such, the committee has established the following four major components:

  1. Safety
  2. Student Achievement
  3. Student Engagement
  4. Cougar Pride

Strategic Intents

Safety - We know that students and staff must feel safe and secure before high-level learning can occur. That is why the Honeoye Falls-Lima School District has placed safety as our first strategic intent.

Student Achievement - Students of Honeoye Falls-Lima Schools will engage in rigorous and relevant application of:

  • Cross-curricular learning
  • Skills development in communication and the use of technology in that communication
  • Collaboration
  • Inquiry/problem solving
  • Current technology tools
  • Multi-cultural experiences with language study and cultural exploration
  • STEaM

Cougar Pride - The School District will provide and foster an inviting school environment in which the Honeoye Falls-Lima community feels pride and ownership.

Student Engagement - Students in Honeoye Falls-Lima Schools will have experiences in and out of the classroom that are made meaningful and relevant through their connections and relationships with others in the school community. These experiences will nurture responsible and ethical decision-making, and quality of character.

Program Budget Advisory Council (PBAC)

HF-L continually seeks to optimize its budget to create great learning for students and to best serve the community. The PBAC includes community members along with teachers and staff who reside in the school district. The PBAC offers feedback and helps prioritize recommendations regarding the programs and services considered for the 2021-22 school year

Each school building and department will present their instructional goals and budget priorities during a series of meetings. At the end of the presentations, the PBAC will share their reflections and the priorities they believe are the most important with the Board of Education for the development of the final budget.

Community members that have served on the PBAC in past years have found this to be a rewarding way to be engaged with HF-L and make a meaningful contribution to the school. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please contact Dr. Bruce Capron, Assistant Superintendent for Business and Operations at bruce.capron@hflcsd.org  or by phone at 585-624-7020. Volunteers must be able to access the internet, attend approximately  six meetings (remotely) on Tuesday evenings, and be willing to provide written feedback following the presentations.
