Message from Superintendent about Budget Revote on Tuesday June 21, 2022

On Tuesday, June 21, residents will be asked to approve a revised budget for the 2022-23 academic year. With slight modifications to the fiscal plan presented to voters on May 17, the East Ramapo Central School District’s revised budget balances the needs of the taxpayers while maintaining quality student educational programs and supports. This proposed budget is the result of very difficult work and a dedication to the fiscally responsible approach of moving our school district forward through an era of rebuilding and regrowth.

The Board of Education remains sensitive to the tax burden on the community, and has lowered the proposed tax levy increase from 3.96% to 1.63%, which is within the New York State tax levy cap. The spending plan represents a budget decrease of 4.96% over last year. 

We encourage everyone to exercise their right to vote for the revised 2022-23 school district budget on Tuesday, June 21, to ensure our children have the tools and opportunities needed to succeed.
