2024-25 Budget Summary

New York state law requires all school districts to present their budgets divided into three expenditure categories (program, administrative, and capital) so taxpayers can see where their money is going. Warrensburg's three-part budget will be added here when the NYS Budget is passed.

Voter Information

The school budget vote will take place from 12 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, in the gymnasium of the Warrensburg Jr/Sr High School.

To be eligible to vote, residents must live in the school district for at least 30 days prior to the May 21 election, be at least 18 years of age and be a citizen of the United States. Residents may register to vote prior to voting on May 21 in the Warrensburg Jr/Sr High School gymnasium.

The district will provide
mail-in and absentee ballots if requested. The district will provide absentee ballots for those previously identified on the county list. The New York Early Mail Voter Act allows registered voters to request a mail-in ballot. You can request an early voter ballot in person up to the day of the election.

Two Board of Education seats on the ballot

Voters will be asked to elect two community members to the Warrensburg CSD board of education. The two seats are currently held by Douglas West and Elaine Cowin. The term for the seats runs from July 1, 2024, to June 30, 2028.

If you are interested in running for one of these seats, petitions are ready for Board of Education candidates to begin obtaining signatures. The deadline for submission of petitions for nominations of Board of Education candidates is April 22, 2024, 4:00 p.m. Submit petitions in person to the Business Office at 103 Schroon River Road. If you have any questions, please contact the Business Office at 518-623-2861 ext. 228.

Transportation on the ballot

In addition to the budget proposition and board of education election, two other propositions will be on the ballot. The first proposition would allow the district to lease three 66-passenger buses for a five year term at an annual cost that would not exceed $120,000. Leasing buses has proven to be an effective and economical way to ensure that the district has the stock to get students to and from school, to their other programs, and to field trips without shortage. The second proposition would allow the district to expend up to $90,000 from the Equipment and Bus/Vehicles Reserve Fund to purchase a transit van for students.
