District delays budget adoption date

Budget 20-21

While Poughkeepsie City School District leadership anticipated bringing forward the 21-22 annual school budget for the Board of Education to adopt this evening, as a result of the state budget not being passed by the April 1 deadline, the district’s budget adoption vote will be delayed. Last evening, the state aid runs were released, which requires district leadership to make adjustments to the draft presented to the BOE and community in past meetings.

PCSD leadership will provide an update to the board of education tonight during the regular business meeting. A new budget adoption date will be proposed for the week of April 12.
