2019/2020 Spending Plan
To our families, community members and staff,
Despite media stories declaring that the District is “Busting the Tax Cap,” the Board of Education and District administration would like to clarify information presented by various media outlets while encouraging all members of our community to review information about the proposed 2019-2020 budget on the ESM website.
To be clear, the District is asking the community to vote on two separate spending propositions. The first proposition is asking voters to support a tax cap-compliant budget of $97,064,113.30. The voters have the option of simply voting yes to this proposition, which if passed by a simple majority, will not pierce the tax cap.
The second proposition is to approve spending an additional $512,411 to hire armed security for all of our school buildings. If proposition 1 and proposition 2 each receive more than 60% of the majority vote, then the tax cap will be pierced.
The District has made available extensive sources of information in the form of seven budget presentations and other helpful documents to assist community members in deciding the spending plan for the school. Please click the following link to review this information:
GOVERNOR CUOMO DIRECTS FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF IN HONOR OF MARINE CORPS RESERVISTS KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed flags on state government buildings to be flown at half-staff in honor of two Marine Corps Reservists who were killed in Parwan Province, Afghanistan on April 8. Flags will be lowered from today until their interment.
Cpl. Robert A. Hendriks, 25, of Locust Valley, Nassau County, and Staff Sgt. Christopher K.A. Slutman, 43, who was a 15-year member of the FDNY, stationed at Ladder Company 23 in the South Bronx, were killed in an improvised explosive device attack while conducting combat operations along with a third Marine, Sgt. Benjamin S. Hines, 31, of York, Pennsylvania.
All were members of the 25th Regiment, 4th Marine Division, Marine Corps Reserve.
"I am deeply saddened by the loss of two members of the family of New York, Cpl. Hendriks and FDNY member Staff Sgt. Slutman, while they were serving our country in Afghanistan," Governor Cuomo said. "Their deaths are a tragic reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of our service members, who put their lives in harm's way to protect our values and way of life. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my condolences to their friends and loved ones, and I am directing that flags be lowered in their honor."
Governor Cuomo has directed that the flags on all State buildings be lowered to half-staff in honor of and in tribute to New York service members and those stationed in New York who are killed in action or die in a combat zone.
