Schuylerville Central School District residents passed a $38 million budget for the 2021-22 school year by a vote of 549 to 158 on Tuesday, May 18. The approved budget carries a 1.53% spending increase and an estimated tax levy increase of 0.9%. Tax rates for individual properties will be determined over the summer once equalization rates and assessments are available for the district’s seven towns. In addition, the bus lease proposition passed 580-120.
“On behalf of the Board of Education and administration, I’d like to thank the community for their support,” said Superintendent Dr. Ryan Sherman. “The 2021-22 budget is a fiscally responsible one that will allow us to continue to provide our students with the high-quality education and exceptional opportunities that have come to define the Schuylerville Central School District. We look forward to maintaining the district’s strong level of academic programming this coming school year.”
