Whitesboro CSD Budget, Propositions Approved by Voters

Voters within the Whitesboro Central School District have once again demonstrated their confidence and trust in the District as the proposed 2020-2021 budget was passed, along with propositions for bus purchases and walk-in voter registration. The budget was approved with a rating of 70 percent.

Some highlights of the $71.8M budget for the 2020-2021 school year include a $100,000 capital outlay project for repairs at Hart’s Hill Elementary School, expansion of the Mandarin Chinese program, the addition of several dual credit courses through local community colleges, and the continued presence of Special Patrol Officers (SPOs) in each of the District’s seven school buildings.

The budget also includes the purchase of two 30-passenger school buses and four 66-passenger school buses, as part of the District’s bus replacement program. Voters also approved to allow the District to implement a system of walk-in voter registration during the hours of 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on regular business days at the Office of the District Clerk, or by appointments.

District voters have elected incumbents Jonathan Henderson and Brian McQueen to the Whitesboro Board of Education. They will serve on the Board from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2022.

The Whitesboro Central School District is grateful for the continued support from the local community in its pursuit of the District’s mission: “To inspire, cultivate, and empower all learners to maximize their potential.”
