FI School Budget & Board of Ed Election

Tuesday, May 15, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fishers Island School Gym

Board of Education Annual Meeting 
Tuesday, May 15 6:00 pm – 6:30pm at Fishers Island School


Dear Citizens:

We are issuing this publication to inform voters of a change that will modify of the proposed tax levy.

After the publication of the most recent budget newsletter, we became aware of an additional revenue source (health insurance contributions) that will change the tax levy increase. Although next year’s school budget will increase by $55,162, the overall proposed tax levy next year is $7,651 higher than this year. Your education tax levy, therefore, will be 0.24% more than the current school year (as opposed to the 2.00% increase that we previously reported).

Please note that this increased revenue does not change the proposed school expenditures of $3,705,581 for the 2018-2019 school year that was published in our original budget newsletter.

As always, please reach out to us if you have any question.

Respectfully Submitted,

Karen L. Goodwin, Superintendent,
Christian Arsenault, Principal,
