Tuxedo Union Free School District Meeting August 21, 2007

The School Board met on August 16, 2007 at 6:30pm.

Newly elected Board President Jim Hickey announced that the Board had the opportunity to review a joint work session between the Greenwood Lake and Warwick school districts, which took place on Monday, August 13. The purpose of the session was to continue dialogue between the two boards about the possible move of Greenwood Lake high school students from George F Baker High School in Tuxedo to the Warwick school system. During the session, a straw poll was taken in an effort to judge how each Boards’ members might feel about such a move. The poll results were unanimously in favor of the change. The issue will be put to public vote in both Greenwood Lake and Warwick later this fall.

It was reported that the tax levy has risen to a rate higher than expected and is now just as high as the one originally proposed by the Board and voted down by the public last May. A reconciliation was requested by the Board. As always, Villagers who are concerned about their school taxes are strongly urged to attend the School Board meetings.

The next School Board meeting will be on Thursday, September 20 at 6:30pm.
