Draft 3 of budget includes added supports, 1% tax levy increase

During the April 3 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent John Carmello presented Draft 3 of the 2019-2020 proposed budget. Thanks to an increase in State Aid over the Governor’s proposal, the District will be able to add needed supports for the first time in several years while staying below the tax cap of 1.89 percent. The $114,174,990 proposed budget includes a tax levy increase of 1 percent. The Board will adopt the proposed budget on April 16. The community will vote on the proposed budget on May 21.
