The 2017-2018 Student Attendance Calendar was approved during the April 25 Board of Education meeting.
After learning of an alleged testing impropriety involving four students at School 14, the District conducted a thorough investigation and
reported the incident to NYSED, as required. We are very proud of the progress we are making in the Troy School District, and this isolated incident involving a substitute teacher should not distract from how hard everyone is working in all of our buildings.
On Wednesday, April 12, the Troy City School District Board of Education unanimously adopted the proposed 2017-2018 budget of $112,018,797. The tax levy will be $36,273,420, representing a 0.45-percent tax levy increase, which is at the allowable tax cap.

On March 14, winter storm “Stella” forced the district to close for two days. New York State Education law requires districts to provide no less than 180 days of instruction. To ensure we meet this requirement, we are amending the 2016-2017 district calendar. Friday, May 26, 2017 and Friday, June 9, 2017 are now half days.
On May 16, 2017 the Troy City School District community will vote on a proposition to authorize the creation of a Capital Reserve Fund for the purpose of financing future capital projects. The Capital Reserve Fund is a savings account that the District will fund over the course of 10 years for the purpose of financing the local share of any future construction or reconstruction projects of its facilities. It will ensure that future capital projects will not become the financial burden of taxpayers.
