Voters approved the 2024-2025 Troy City School District budget Tuesday by a vote of 675-89 (88.35%). The $133-million dollar budget maintains student programs and supports without increasing the tax levy. This year marks four consecutive years of a 0% tax levy increase and 12 consecutive years with a budget at or below the district’s allowable tax cap.

The proposed $46 million capital project was approved by a vote of 581-101(85.19%). This project will allow the district to make significant improvements to multiple aging buildings without increasing the tax levy.

Four candidates were elected to the Board of Education: Elizabeth Poleto (472, incumbent), Donny Miller (464, incumbent), Josh Chiappone (463), and Matthew Flowers, Jr. (399, incumbent).

“This budget allows us to continue building on our successes and ensure the needs of all of our students are met,” said Superintendent John Carmello. “We are grateful to the voters for trusting us to provide the exceptional education our students deserve, and we are committed to making sure every student graduates college and career-ready.”

“I’d like to thank our voters for their support of the Troy City School District,” said Board of Education President Anne Wager-Rounds. “I am so proud of the work we are doing here, and this budget allows us to continue providing the opportunities our students need to be prepared for their futures. I would also like to congratulate Elizabeth, Donny and Matthew on their re-election, and Josh on his election to the Board of Education and look forward to their service with us.”

The Board of Education will meet Wednesday, May 22 at 6pm at Troy Middle School.
