An Open Letter to the Partners of HFM BOCES

March 2024

On behalf of the Board of Cooperative Educational Services, I respectfully submit for your review the 2024-25 HFM BOCES Budget Book, which outlines our proposed budget for next year.

After much work, for next year, we present to you an administrative budget with a 0.57 percent increase over our current administrative budget.

We welcome your questions and comments and look forward to discussion concerning the budget during our Annual Meeting at 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 10 at our main campus.

During the evening, I will present how our proposed budget was developed with input from our component district superintendents. Chief Financial Officer Kathi Lewis will also be present to address any questions you might have.

By statute, each component board of education will vote on the administrative portion of the HFM BOCES budget on April 24. At that time, our component boards will also elect two members to the BOCES Board of Education.

If at any time, you have specific questions regarding the proposed budget please feel free to contact me or Chief Financial Officer Kathi Lewis at (518) 736-4310 or by e-mail at

In partnership,

David Ziskin
HFM District Superintendent
