The 2020-21 School Budget was adopted by the BOE on 5-19 and posted, here. The annual budget newsletter will be mailed, week of May 25th.
Our 2020 Budget Newsletter, "Budget Matters", will be mailed out to all residents after Memorial Day. It will feature the budget fast facts, budget goals & key initiatives, trustee election information, as well as highlights and achievements presented to the school community with pride. This year we are trying something new by providing QR codes that will link residents and readers directly to some of the work presented by our students and staff.
In addition to the newsletter, all qualified voters will receive an absentee ballot via first class mail that should be used this year in lieu of in-person voting. The newsletter, containing information to help voters make an informed decision regarding the budget vote and trustee election, will be mailed around the same time as the absentee ballot. Absentee ballots will be mailed with a self-stamped envelope and must be filled out and sent back to the school district by June 9th at 5:00pm. In a 4th and final mailing relating the the budget, residents will receive the Budget Notice, which is a grid of the tax information, after the June 1 BOE Budget Hearing. The budget vote and BOE election, done via absentee ballot, will be counted and then verified starting at 5pm on June 1.
Questions or concerns regarding the school budget or trustee election can be directed to our District Clerk, Linda DeCicco, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
