CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Chappaqua Central School District voters will decide on Tuesday, May 17, whether to approve the proposed 2016-17
The proposed school budget includes total spending of $118,225,288, which represents a $323,600, or 0.27 percent increase over the current budget.
There is no increase to the tax levy in the proposed budget, and since this budget is below the state mandated tax cap, eligible homeowners will receive a property tax rebate from New York state.
The Chappaqua Central School District Board of Education voted to adopt the proposal April 13.
The proposed 2016-2017 school budget will do the following:
- Align personnel based on the District’s mission, the Board’s strategic questions, and administrative operating standards.
- Strengthen the social/emotional/health supports for all students.
- Continue to develop a digital learning environment that prepares students to live, learn and work in a globally networked society.
- Expand professional development around teaching and learning practices related to innovative learning spaces.
- Support 80 athletic teams at all levels of competition.
- Adjust personnel to effectively manage enrollment at all schools.
