‘The Budget Vote & Trustee Election is scheduled for Tuesday, May 15, 2018 from 7 am – 9 pm in the William Floyd High School east lobby.
The proposed budget for the 2018-19 school year allows the district to continue all of its current instructional, music, fine arts, athletics and co-curricular programs for students while making additional changes to help William Floyd continue on its upward trajectory. Last year, the district had the highest graduation rate it has ever achieved due to fiscally responsible, strategic planning by the Board of Education and district administration. This year’s budget also uses the same strategies to try to enhance what we are doing and help our students succeed in a very competitive 21st century environment. You can view some of the highlights on the cover page and all of the proposed offerings on page three.
This year’s proposed budget is once again sensitive to the community while offering students the opportunities that they deserve and need to excel now and into the future. As responsible stewards of our community’s resources, this year’s proposed budget includes a tax levy increase of 2.03%, which stays well below the allowable New York State tax cap for the seventh consecutive year (the tax cap era).
Please read through this brochure to learn about all of the additions in the proposed budget. The contingent budget would result in no increase in the property tax levy. Please review page three of this brochure to see the difference in what is included in the proposed and contingent budgets. The difference between the proposed and contingent budget is .33¢ (cents) per day for a resident in the average assessed home valued at $1,995 as determined by the Town of Brookhaven Tax Assessor.
On Tuesday, May 15, please remember to come out and vote. No matter how you vote, it’s important to let your voice be heard. Thank you and we hope to see you at the polls!
