Board Adopts Proposed 2024-25 School Budget

At its April 23 meeting, the Board of Education adopted the proposed Catskill Central School District budget for the 2024-2025 school year. The budget totals $49,430,997 and carries no tax levy increase. Spending is down a total of $457,637, a 0.917 percent decrease from the 2023-24 budget. The budget includes no layoffs and no cuts to student programs. The District sought efficiency measures, applied state and federal grant money, and applied $3,438,121 in fund balance to reduce year-to-year cost increases and hold the tax levy increase to 0 percent. 

You can learn more at our public hearing on the budget, scheduled for May 8, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. in the Catskill High School library.

Additional information is available on our Budget Information page, with more to be added in the next few weeks. More information will also be provided in our budget newsletter mailed out to residents in May.

The annual School Budget Vote and Board Election is May 21, 2024 from 1:00–9:00 p.m. in the Catskill High School gymnasium.
