I am not too far from Victor and surprised they are on the list of spending the least. That district has grown over the past several years, quite a program for athletes in track they have a trail system, they also offer clubs in which no other district in their region has due to their population and being so close to Rochester. They are basically able to offer everything a private school system in Rochester has. Must have private endowments for their facilities that are being used since I know plenty of people who moved there to avoid sending their kids to private school while still having the clubs and luxuries of one.

Something doesn't make sense, Kyras Joel has 1 public school, 161 students, they run Pre-K and Kindergarten only and they are spending $152K per student I would say someone is skimming off of that pot for another purpose.

So yes fastest growing, because its in the Finger Lakes but close to Rochester and has the luxerious of a private school, so a perfect location to live if you want to be near Rochester, while also in the Finger Lakes and have the luxerious of a private school without paying fees and having the hassle of sending your kids into a private school system.
Somehow they are getting programs running in their systems that most public schools do not offer which is attracting a higher population. Where I'm from is about 10 miles away and we have a higher population but we have high taxes which pays for the luxerious programs and there is also the private sector (a local arena, as well as businesses) that pays for facilities, etc. Just surprised Victor isn't spending as much for their athletics they must be getting their bread buttered by town government and/or some other funds, otherwise there would be no way they would be able to pay for extra stuff the neighboring districts and others (eg. Pal-mac) don't have.

I’m curious if Victor has a well established Booster Club or if parents chip in funds. I’m curious because of the spending numbers and what you mentioned about its good athletics program(particularly Football, Lacrosse and Softball, among a few others).

I’ve also seen in the past where athletes/parents had to pay to play, but that usually occurs if there are budget issues pertaining to athletic programs or maybe club sports.

Any Victor people on here that would know about this?
