2017-18 Budget Revote Information
School Budget Revote on Tuesday, June 20, 2017
As a result of the unsuccessful super-majority vote on the 2017-18 proposed budget, a revote will take place on the legally determined date of Tuesday, June 20, 2017. Unfortunately, the law states that the Board of Education must adopt a budget by next week (see schedule below); leaving minimal time to create a second budget. It is important for the Board and Superintendent to get as much feedback as possible during such a small window of time. For this reason, we are reviewing exit polling and community survey data which will be shared at our Board meeting on May 22, 2017, before a new budget needs to be adopted on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
Below is a very compressed schedule for the 2017-2018 proposed budget revote, as predetermined by New York State Law:
Thursday, May 18, 2017
Community Feedback Survey Opened.
Sunday, May 21, 2017
Community Feedback Survey Closed.
Monday, May 22, 2017
Board of Education Meeting, 7 p.m. Barker Road Middle School Auditorium.
Review of community feedback and exit polls.

Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Revote for 2017-2018 proposed budget, 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Barker Road Middle School Gymnasium (Voting only on the budget). In the event this budget is not successful, PCSD will legally be required to go to a contingent budget which would result in a $6.7 million gap from the last proposed budget.
As we move forward, we encourage the PCSD community to attend the above Board of Education meetings, and vote on June 20, 2017.
