BOARD OF EDUCATION PASSES MOTION TO LOWER TAX LEVY TO 2.83% AND REVOTE

The Board of Education voted to revise the 2019-2020 budget during their meeting on Thursday, May 30th.

 

The BOE unanimously passed a motion to lower the tax levy to 2.83%.

 

The district will release all new budget information in the coming days.  The latest budget information will always be posted on our website here: https://www.oacsd.org/BoardofEducation.aspx


The statewide revote date is Tuesday, June 18th.  District polls will be open from Noon - 8:00 P.M. at Apalachin Elementary School and Owego Apalachin Middle School.  (The OAMS lobby will be used for this vote instead of OFA, due to regents testing taking place in OFA that day.)


A revised budget newsletter will be posted to our website and mailed directly to district residents.  

 

A public hearing on the budget will take place on Tuesday, June 11th at 6:00 P.M. in the BOE room at the district office.
