Budget Vote, BOE Elections are Tuesday, May 18, 2021
The Tri-Valley Central School District Board of Education has adopted a $35,171,263 budget for voter consideration for the 2021-22 academic year.
Voting hours are 1-8 p.m. May 18, 2021 in the Tri-Vally Secondary School gymnasium (34 Moore Hill Road, Grahamsville.) Absentee ballots are also availabe upon request by email at email@example.com.
The proposed budget represents a .86 percent ($301,186) increase over the current school year’s budget.
The proposed budget, developed collaboratively by the Board of Education, district administration and staff, has taken a conservative approach addressing current financial uncertainties while anticipating future financial challenges. The educational needs of students, as well as the educational experiences the district can provide to them, are at the core of all spending.
Additionally, the New York State Property Tax Cap calculation for the 2021-22 school year yields a negative amount. The tax cap calculates at -.8 percent (-$168,261).
In summary, the proposed budget for voter consideration has a .86 percent increase in spending and a .8 percent decrease in tax levy dollars.
Voters will also elect three members to the Tri-Valley Board of Education.
