The following series of articles explain some of the more arcane and complicated aspects of school budgets.
HOW TO USE THE REPORT – AN EXAMPLE:
The Middle School Roof Replacement project was funded during two consecutive fiscal years (2005-06 and 2006-07) using an SED project number of 0006-018. The total amount allocated to the project was $518,071.33 as shown on page 1 including $380,328.55 from sub-fund 2509 (meaning it was the 9th project funded during the 2005-06 school year) and $137,742.78 from sub-fund 2609 (the 9th project funded during the 2006-07 school year). For those who are interested in more information than that, they are directed to the "Summary Report" for this project which starts on page 14 where they can see how the money was spent:

|$428,273.35||on||293 - General Construction; and|

|Lauren Abeles is congratulated by Roslyn High School Principal Kevin Scanlon, Assistant Superintendent for Business Joseph C. Dragone, and Guidance Counselor William Caruso upon winning the Philip B. Fredenberg Memoral Award for Outstanding Service.|
Roslyn High School senior Lauren Abeles was chosen to receive the Philip B. Fredenburg Memorial Award for Outstanding Service, which includes a $1,000 scholarship. Lauren has been very involved working with students with disabilities and has volunteered a lot of her time with the Shooting Stars (Basketball) and Challenger League (Baseball). She also works at the JCC for youth education with students with disabilities.
The $1,000 scholarship was part of the prize awarded to Joseph C. Dragone, Assistant Superintendent for Business, when he received the Philip B. Fredenburg Memorial Award for Outstanding Service at the annual conference of the New York State Association of School Business Officials (NYSASBO) on June 7, 2010 in recognition of "his long and meritorious service to children, NYSASBO and the educational community."
Mr. Dragone’s total award of $1,500 was divided into two portions; a $500 cash prize that Mr. Dragone donated to a private fund that provides assistance to disadvantaged Roslyn children, enabling them to participate in school-sponsored programs, and a $1,000 scholarship which was given to Lauren for her outstanding service to the community.
Questions about the business and finance operations of the school district may be directed to the office of Joseph C. Dragone, Assistant Superintendent for Business.
