General Information Data for 2014-2015
Efficient Budgeting
Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) is extremely proud of its fiscal efficiency and remains committed to the highest level of professionalism. Through the expertise of its staff and the quality of its programs and services, all of what GISD does impacts instruction, learning, productivity, and efficiency. The GISD budget is fully compliant with all governmental accounting standards. GISD is pleased that it received an excellent audit last year.

Budget Allocations
Over 90% of GISD’s comprehensive budget is linked to direct student support services throughout the constituent districts. GISD staff account for 35% of GISD’s annual budget; much lower than typical overhead associated with salaries and benefits in most organizations. More importantly, 70% of GISD’s personnel costs are linked to direct student support services.

The remaining 30% of the comprehensive budget accounts for infrastructure and other GISD services vital for student support in Genesee County. Without the operational, business, payroll, and administrative support for the organization, all of the direct services to students could not be delivered effectively.

Cost-Cutting Initiatives
GISD has implemented many cost-cutting initiatives including: 
  • Engaged in an Energy Education program in consortium with seven other districts to save nearly $3.5 million in energy costs, representing a 23% reduction
  • A common office platform that is in place in all GISD facilities
  • A copier / printer project that is projected to save a quarter of a million dollars annually
  • Reorganization and reduction of administrative staff while maintaining and expanding services to students

Further, GISD is extremely proud of its grant procurement success. In the 2014-2015 fiscal year, GISD leveraged over $70 million from outside sources in addition to federal, state, and local government revenue. Grant revenue represents 41% of GISD’s overall budget.
