A message to our community on the school budget vote

May 23, 2019

To the Port Chester Community:

It is my pleasure to thank you for once again supporting the School Budget on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. The 2019-20 budget protects the many wonderful educational programs our students need and enjoy to ensure they are prepared for remarkable careers and vocations.

I also thank those of you who contacted our legislators and signed our petitions to ask Albany to provide legally sanctioned Foundation Aid funding for our district. While our Foundation Aid increased only about 2%, we did receive additional funding to continue full day PreKindergarten and Community Schools’ services.

We are fortunate to have a wonderful community, children, and school district. Thanks to your ongoing support the children in our care continue to exceed our expectations and succeed in many areas.

I wish you all a restful, healthy, and delightful summer with your loved ones and friends.

Edward A. Kliszus, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
