CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – A presentation regarding the projected tax rates for Chappaqua Central School District's proposed 2013-14 budget will take place at Wednesday night’s school board meeting at 8:15 p.m. in Horace Greeley High School, according to the agenda .
Next year’s tax rates represent dollar amounts per $1,000 of assessed property value and what each taxpayer owe the school district in relation to the budget. The rates are currently projections and will not be finalized until the summer.
The agenda also indicates Superintendent Lyn McKay will give an update on the district’s search for Douglas Grafflin Middle School’s next principal.
The meeting follows in the footsteps of Superintendent Lyn McKay’s initial proposal on Feb. 27 and last month’s meetings, which went into further detail of how the proposed budget would impact special education, curriculum and athletics.
McKay’s proposal comes in at $114,828,088 — $2,625,200 more than 2012-13 — and represents a 2.34 percent increase and 2.4 percent tax levy increase. It also includes 12.39 job cuts, 8.9 of them being teach positions.
“We are tighter; we know. But we will be okay,” said McKay said in February. “What this budget will do is move our programs forward in terms of education, which is most important.”
