I am thrilled to inform you that the New Lebanon Central School District’s 2021-2022 school budget passed this evening with a super majority of 73%. We had 386 yes votes and 141 no votes. Being that the district went above the tax cap, a 60% majority was needed to approve the budget this school year and we exceeded this threshold.
This outcome is a testament to every member of our district community. Tonight’s vote reaffirms the community’s long standing commitment to our students and district. On behalf of the district, I want to thank you for your support of the New Lebanon Central School District. The approved 2021-2022 school budget will allow the district to continue the excellent academic programs and extracurricular opportunities for our students.
Our community elected both Bill Buckenroth (417 yes votes) – and Michael Brutsch (388 yes votes) for a 3-year New Lebanon Board of Education term.
Thank you to all who voted in this year’s budget. We appreciate your support and dedication towards our New Lebanon school community.
