The Tuxedo Union Free School District’s 2016-2017 proposed $13,497,279 budget is a strong, fiscally responsible one which keeps all programs and staff in place for the forthcoming school year and most importantly, gives all students the very best STEM-infused educational opportunities. \

Our focus remains first and foremost on academic achievement and overall student success.

The Tuxedo Union Free School District’s Board of Education and administration have worked diligently to make the best decisions for its students and community for the long-term.

We can assure you careful planning, prudent judgment and consideration of all options and scenarios were part of this budget’s development, as the goal to taxpayers is to have an impact as minimal as possible.

The proposed budget reflects 4.73 percent decrease over the previous year’s budget. It does have an estimated 1.06 percent tax levy which does require a super majority to pass.

The details of this budget are representative of what this district feels is critically important: Giving every child in the Tuxedo Union Free School District the very best education possible.

We are hopeful voters will support our judicious planning and recognize the fiscal responsibility demonstrated in this proposed budget.

Whether you are the parent of a Tuxedo student, a district resident, a civic, business or community leader or an elected official, we want you to know we are grateful and appreciative of the support you’ve shown to us during this budget preparation season.

Please vote on May 17th.

President, Board of Education
