2021-22 Budget Newsletter
  • See the Ichabod Crane 2021-22 Budget Newsletter
    • Update (May 7, 2021): Please note there was an error in the calculations for the 2021-22 contingency budget on the School District Budget Notice on page 6 of the originally posted newsletter PDF. The linked PDF above now includes the revised Budget Notice. However, all of the proposed 2021-22 budget numbers, including the tax levy, are accurate as originally published. It’s important to note that the public is voting on the district’s proposed 2021-22 budget spending plan. In the event that the district was to enact a contingency budget, a final spending plan within the confines of New York State contingency budget regulations would be discussed and adopted by the Board of Education.
