2021-22 School Budget

The school budget process culminates Tuesday, May 18, 2021, when all qualified, registered district residents can cast their ballots in the school budget and Board of Education election.

Residents will be considering a $43,140,237 budget that would not raise the local property tax levy.


What's on the ballot

In addition to voting on the 2021-22 school budget, residents will elect two candidates for the Board of Education, each for three-year terms. Jason Gagnon is seeking election to the Board, and both Aimee Yorke and Dominga Lent are seeking reelection. All nominations for Board of Education seats are considered “at large” rather than for a specific seat.

How to vote

Voting will take place both in person on May 18, 2021, between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. at C-R High School, and also via absentee ballot.

More information about how to apply for and cast an absentee ballot can be found here: Absentee ballot application information.
