2017-18 proposed tax levy increases by one-tenth of a percent

On Tuesday, May 16, Monticello Central School District residents will vote on a $85,299,550 proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year and elect three members to the Board of Education. The proposed budget, which includes a 0.10 percent increase in the tax levy, is below the district’s tax levy limit of 0.15 percent.

Monticello’s process of developing a budget is rooted in the district’s and Board of Education’s four goals: the academic success of its students, fiscal responsibility, maintaining and enhancing district facilities and cultivating an atmosphere of respect, trust and kindness. With those goals in mind, the district proposed a budget that is below the tax levy limit and maintains all of the district’s current programs that are working in innovative ways to help students grow and increase academic outcomes.
