Board of Education adopts 2016-17 budget proposal

The Schuylerville Board of Education adopted the proposed $34.13 million budget at its regular meeting on Monday, March 21. The budget proposal will result in a zero percent tax levy increase.

“The district consistently puts forth a budget allowing us to remain fiscally strong,” Business Manager Marian Chrisman said. “We remain committed to the goal of maintaining and improving opportunities for students while being mindful of the impact on taxpayers.”

Schuylerville’s budget proposal maintains current programs and services for students and includes funding to increase personnel, including a social studies teacher (0.8 to 1.0 Full-Time Equivalent), a public information specialist/chief information officer (0.6 to 1.0 FTE) and a technology integration specialist (teacher on special assignment) who will be assisting teachers in the continued growth of the technology department.

The proposed budget will go before the public for a vote on Tuesday, May 17. To view the budget presentation given at the March 21 board meeting, click here. For details on the vote, click here.
