Hoosic Valley CSD’s  Standard & Poor’s Rating Upgrade

August 24, 2015 - Standard & Poor’s Rating Service has upgraded Hoosic Valley Central School District’s credit rating to ‘AA-‘ from ‘A+’ with a stable outlook.  The upgrade to ‘AA-‘ is a reflection of the district’s maintenance of strong finances through good financial management practices, very strong reserves, and moderate per capita debt.  The credit rating upgrade is a result of conservative financial budgeting and planning by the Board of Education and district administration.  The upgraded rating will allow the district when necessary to borrow funds at competitively low interest rates.
