Watch Tonight's Board of Education Meeting
View the New Rochelle Board of Education meeting at 7 p.m. tonight here:
Dear New Rochelle community,
We heard the message you sent about the proposed 2018-2019 budget. Now that the plan we proposed did not succeed, we will take a hard look at all items and at ways to lessen the tax burden that next year’s spending plan will carry.
We will seek ways that we can reduce spending while offering a budget that will provide for safe, nurturing schools and that will address the social and emotional needs of students, as so many of you encouraged us to do.
We are committed to presenting a new budget that stays within the state tax levy cap of 2.231 percent over the current year. That will mean cutting $3.4 million from the budget that the community voted on Tuesday.
The new budget will be presented to the Board of Education next Tuesday, May 22. The Board of Education will adopt a final revised budget on May 29. A public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. on June 5 in New Rochelle High School.
The vote on the revised budget will be held June 19.
I encourage you to attend the meetings to learn about the proposed new budget. If you cannot attend in person, the meetings and hearing will be streamed live on our website, www.nred.org. Also, in the coming weeks, you will continue to find information about the plan on our website, in our weekly e-newsletter and on the District’s Facebook page.
Thank you for your continued interest in this vitally important process. A well-constructed budget is the foundation of our educational system. I know that we all want what is best for the community, and especially for the city’s children and young adults.
