March 23, 2017 – During the March 22 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent John Carmello presented the second draft of the 2017-2018 School District Budget. The proposed draft of $113,040,797 will come with a tax cap of .45%, less than half a percent increase from last year. Carmello also proposed that the Board vote to approve a resolution on the May ballot that, if approved by voters, would authorize the District to establish a Capital Reserve to save for future projects.
