District residents will vote on the proposed school budget for 2017-18 on Tuesday, May 16 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The proposed budget, which maintains all current programs and services, totals $92.2 million, an increase of 2.25% from last year.

The proposed tax levy increase is 3.7%, which is consistent with the New York State property tax cap of 3.7%, requiring a simple majority to pass the budget.

In addition to the school budget, voters will decide on two school bus propositions, a $39 million capital project to address aging infrastructure and elect three Board of Education members.
