Hello PCS families and community,
As we get closer to the June 9 budget votes, board election and capital project referendum, I wanted to provide you with some updates and important reminders:
- All qualified voters (18 years of age, residing in the district for 30 days prior to vote, and a citizen of the United States) in the district should be receiving absentee ballots this week. These ballots can be completed and mailed in using the self-addressed stamped envelope provided. If you do not receive an absentee ballot, please call Roxy Elward at 522-6211. These ballots need to be received by 5:00 PM on June 9.
- Our 2020-2021 adopted budget is a 1.62% increase over this year’s budget. However, we are anticipating a 0% tax increase for PCS residents this year!
- We also have a capital project referendum for vote. Follow this link for information on the capital project including Q and A documents and scope of the work to be completed: https://www.prattsburghcsd.org/Page/2336
- Most importantly, this project will be able to be completed with no additional impact to tax payers. We will be able to enhance our facilities and meet the needs of our students while still holding taxes down.
I will be having a Facebook LIVE event to discuss the budget, the tax impact and the capital project on Thursday, May 21 at 3:00 PM. For those of you who don’t have Facebook, there will be videos on our website that provide additional information.
Also, if you ever have any questions about the budget or the proposed capital project, please do not hesitate to call me at 607-522-6211 or email me at email@example.com. I would be happy to answer any questions.
Finally, thank you for your continued support during this crazy time. All of us at PCS miss your children and can’t wait to get them back to school.
Take care and stay safe.
