School Budgets Approved in Local Districts

• Bookmarks: 129


May 19, 2021

By Brianna Staudt and Rick Pezzullo

Voters overwhelmingly approved the 2021-22 school budgets yesterday proposed by Dobbs Ferry public schools, Irvington public schools, the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns and Pocantico Hills.

All board of education (BOE) trustee candidates on the ballots in these districts won their races. In each district, the number of candidates matched the number of open seats.

In the Tarrytowns, voters also approved propositions to purchase replacement school buses and vehicles and expand transportation eligibility for students in grades 3–5, which made an additional 250 or so students eligible for bussing at an estimated annual cost of about $150,000.

Here are the results by school district:
