Board Adopts Proposed 2021-22 School Budget

On April 20, 2021, the Board of Education adopted the proposed budget for the 2021-2022 school year. The budget was created to continue Catskill Central School District’s current student programs and staffing, while reducing the burden to our taxpayers. The budget totals $46,052,273 and carries a tax levy increase of 1.97%, which is under the State’s allowable tax cap of 4.15%. The budget is up a total of $3,171,061 (7.39%) from the current year’s budget. The District applied $2,677,295 in fund balance to reduce the tax levy increase.

A public hearing on the budget is scheduled for May 5, 6:00 p.m. in the Catskill High School library.

Budget development presentations and additional information are available on our Budget Information Page. More information will also be provided in our budget newsletter mailed out in May.

The annual School Budget Vote and Board Election is May 18, 2021 from 1:00–9:00 p.m. in the Catskill High School gymnasium.
