About the annual school budget vote
In New York state, local school boards must annually develop a balanced school budget proposal and put it up for a public vote on the third Tuesday in May. District expenses may include salaries and benefits, curriculum, staff development, facilities maintenance and operation, transportation and debt service. Revenue includes state funding, federal funding, property taxes and appropriated fund balance.
Annual budget vote is May 18
The Washingtonville Central School District Board of Education adopted a $109,623,308 proposed budget
for the 2021-2022 school year. The proposal reflects a 2.5% tax levy increase, the total amount of local taxes
that support the budget, and is below the allowable limits set by the New York State tax levy calculation,
or “tax cap” as it is more commonly known. The district has been operating within its calculated state
tax cap every year since it was implemented in 2012.
