BOE adopts 2023-24 budget proposal; voters to elect three members to the Board

During its March 20 regular business meeting, the Schuylerville Board of Education adopted the 2023-24 budget proposal that will go before voters on Tuesday, May 16; qualified voters will be able to vote from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the District Office Board of Education room.

The $38.4 million proposed budget calls for a .63% spending decrease and an estimated tax levy of 1.98%. State aid projections provide the ability to keep the district’s tax levy below the allowable tax cap of 4.3%. Tax rates for individual properties will be determined over the summer once equalization rates and assessments are available for the district’s seven towns. The budget proposal maintains current programs and services for Schuylerville students K-12.
