‘The Budget Vote & Trustee Election is scheduled for Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 7 am – 9 pm in the William Floyd High School east lobby.
Please note that the annual Budget Hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 7 pm in the William Floyd High School library.
A Message from the Board of Education: The proposed budget for the 2019-20 school year focuses on continuing the social, emotional and academic growth of our students at all levels, while being sensitive to our community and staying at or below the property tax cap for the eighth consecutive year. Our district, which continues its upward trajectory, continues to make additions and upgrades in an effort to educate the whole child and reach new heights. This proposed budget takes additional steps to further increase the graduation rate, which reached an all-time high of 86.1% last August. Although we are pleased with the progress that we have made, there is still more to be accomplished!
This year’s proposed budget includes adding six middle school teachers for the nine-period day at the middle school level, an expansion of the William Floyd Learning Center with a sixth-grade section, five special education teachers, one school counselor, a variety of technology upgrades and more, all with the same goal of providing the best education possible for our children and increasing the graduation rate. It has been and continues to be this Board’s mission to provide opportunities that are successful and sustainable. Please read the brochure linked below to see a list of additions and the differences between the proposed and contingent budgets.
Then, on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, please remember to come out and vote. No matter how you vote, it is important to let your voice be heard. Thank you and we hope to see you at the polls!
