On May 17, Washingtonville Central School District voters approved a $116,675,305 proposed budget for the 2022-23 school year by a vote of 1,423 (yes) to 349 (no). The budget carries a $7,051,997 increase in spending over the current year’s budget and will result in a 1.8% tax levy increase, which is within the district’s tax levy cap.

The Capital Reserve Fund Proposition was approved by a vote of 1,384 (yes) to 361 (no). 

“I would like to thank the community members who took the time to vote today,” Superintendent Dr. Larry Washington said. “This budget enables us to strengthen and continue our commitment to preparing students for the future with expanded academic opportunities. Your support of the Washingtonville students and staff is greatly appreciated.”
