Monticello Central School District — like school districts throughout New York — is facing a fiscal crisis. The downturn of the national economy, coupled with new mandates and the state’s tax levy limit, has challenged public schools to continue to provide a high-quality education to all students with significantly fewer resources. As a result, districts are making devastating cuts to educational programs as they adjust to rising costs that are outpacing revenue.

District leaders at Monticello have been working with staff and community members to find creative ways to weather the economic storm without sacrificing the integrity of our program. Yet without meaningful and timely relief from our government leaders, residents may risk losing the high level of public education they have come to know and value throughout the years.

Community members can use the resources on this webpage to contact and advocate with legislators. Thank you for taking the time to advocate and for helping ensure that Monticello students continue to receive the high-quality education they deserve.
