Troy City School District residents have approved a $131,898,112 budget for the 2023-2024 school year. Three candidates were elected to the Board of Education.

The unofficial results of the budget vote are 421 yes and 59 no. This budget will result in a 0-percent tax levy increase – a figure that is $934,270 below the allowable tax cap of 2.46%. This also marks the third year in a row with a 0-percent tax levy increase, and the eleventh consecutive year the District has presented a budget under the tax cap.

Three candidates were elected to the Board of Education for three-year terms effective July 1, 2023:

Diana Heckman (393), Thomas Mayo (390), and Nathanael Wootten (371)

“I would like to thank the Troy voters for their support of our 2023-2024 budget,” said Superintendent John Carmello. “This year’s budget highlights our priority to meet the needs of our students and our commitment to being responsible stewards of our taxpayers’ money. We are committed to doing what is necessary to build on our successes, and this budget will allow us to do just that.”

“On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to sincerely thank the community for their support of our district,” said Board of Education President Anne Wager-Rounds. “Congratulations to Tom and Diana on their reelection to the board, and to Nathanael on his election. I look forward to our continued work together to ensure each of our students reach their full potential.”

The Board of Education will meet on Wednesday, May 17 at 6:00 p.m. at Troy Middle School (1976 Burdett Avenue).
