PV Schools

Dear Putnam Valley Community:

Please remember to get out and vote on Tuesday, May 16.  Voting will take place from 6 am to 9 pm at Putnam Valley Elementary School.  Please visit our website www.pvcsd.org for more detailed budget information.

Proposed budget highlights:

  • Below the allowable tax levy cap (12th consecutive year)
  • Maintains academic programs and staffing
  • Revenue generated by welcoming Garrison students to PVHS
  • Balances educational programs with fiscal responsibility

Board Trustee Election:  One seat is open and two candidates are running.  Joseph Ferraro (incumbent) and Crystal Hernandez will be on the ballot. We are grateful to these volunteers who are willing to serve our community.

Ballot information: An additional proposition will be on our ballot this year.  The Town will use a provision of state law that allows them to put their budget out for voter approval at the same time as residents vote on the school budget.  While the propositions will appear on the same ballot, no school district funds are shared with the town library, and no library funds are shared with the district.  These are two separate entities and will remain so moving forward.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to Jill Figarella or me if you have any questions regarding our proposed budget for the 2023-2024 school year.

Enjoy this beautiful weather and have a great weekend!

Thank you,

Dr. Jeremy Luft
Superintendent of Schools
