Dear Community Members,
The 2018-19 budget reflects a 2.21% increase in the tax levy. The previous two years the district has not had an increase in the levy. The estimated tax rate will be $11.89 which is an increase of twenty-six cents per thousand. Therefore, a taxpayer with a home assessed at $100,000 would see an increase
of $26.00 in their school tax bill. The overall budget is increasing by $763,358 with the vast majority of the increases occurring in the areas of health insurance and special education expenses. This budget proposal will allow the school to maintain its current programs and the district will be using fund balance to off-set the increased cost this year.
Phyllis Klein, Sunnie Lobdell and Heather Sheehan will be running for the two vacant positions on the Board of Education, both positions are for three year terms.
Thank you for your continued support of the students that we teach at Willsboro Central School. The district continues our commitment to provide quality programs and services to everyone involved in our school community.
– Steven Broadwell, Superintendent of Schools
