Absentee Ballots
Absentee ballots are available to residents who will be out of town or unable to vote in person because of illness or disability. Applications for absentee ballots must be received at the office of the School District Clerk by May 11, 2021, if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter, or prior to May 17, 2021, if the ballot is to be delivered personally to the voter. Completed absentee ballots must be received by the School District Clerk no later than 5 PM on May 18, 2021 (date of the Budget Vote).
Military Absentee Ballots
The Education Law also makes special provisions for absentee voting for “military” voters of the District.  Specifically, the law provides a unique procedure for “military ballots” in school district votes.  A military voter may elect to receive his/her absentee ballot by mail, email, or facsimile.  The military voter must return his/her completed military ballot application no later than 5:00 pm on the day preceding the deadline for transmitting a military ballot.  The deadline for the Clerk to transmit the military ballot is 25 days before the vote.  The completed military ballot must be received by the Clerk by mail or in-person no later than 5:00 pm. on the day of the vote.

Budget Calendar

Budget development is a year round process. The district continually monitors the current budget to actual expenditures and reviews the needs of students.

In December, the Board of Education adopts a budget calendar. The administration then prepares a draft budget with principals and supervisors.

From January through April, the Board devotes much of its meeting time to budget development. Buildings and departments present to the Board. Administration looks at internal and external factors that are likely to have the greatest impact on next year’s school budget. As more accurate cost estimates and enrollment figures are received, budget numbers are refined. Revenues are also refined in late March or early April as the State releases state aid revenue and the Tax Cap is filed.

In April, the Board of Education votes to adopt a proposed budget. A newsletter detailing the budget is mailed to all district homes. A budget broken down by line items is made available at the main office of each school, district office, and district website.

On the third Tuesday of May, the community votes on the proposed budget.
