Roslyn School District Budget Vote & Election Tuesday, May 16, 2023
The Roslyn School District’s proposed 2023-2024 budget was adopted by the Board of Education on Tuesday, April 18, 2023. The proposed property tax levy increase of 2.57% is below the tax cap limit of 3.01%, with a spending increase of 4.36%.
The $127,474,805 budget supports the district’s tradition of academic excellence, supports the music, art, athletic, and extra-curricular programs, and will provide for necessary capital improvements, while remaining well below the permissible tax levy limit.
Last year, the district launched a state-of-the-art Bloomberg Terminal financial lab to extend students’ knowledge of the markets; incorporated an Anatomage Table into a multi-grade level science class and pre-med electives; increased security features; upgraded cyber-security monitoring; and completed in progress capital improvements in all school buildings. In the coming year, the proposed budget will provide for an expansion of the athletic program, add exciting new opportunities for elementary and secondary students, upgrade technology, provide apprenticeships, install a security booth at the high school, and sustain and improve infrastructure projects across the district.
