Farmingdale BOE Adopts 2020-2021 Budget

On Tuesday night, the Farmingdale Board of Education adopted the 2020-2021 Farmingdale School District budget. The budget, adopted virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, calls for a spending plan totaling $173,076,607—an increase of $1,992,807 (1.16%) from last year’s budget—and a tax levy of 1.95%.


“The ongoing pandemic and the uncertainty of state aid made this budget a particularly challenging and time-sensitive undertaking,” said Assistant to the Superintendent for Business Michael Motisi. “Through continued conservative fiscal management, we generated a 2020-21 spending plan that maintains programs and services to students, parents, and the community at a reasonable cost. We focused on the health, safety, and operational needs of the district, and removed any non essential projects.”


On the ballot this year are two propositions that allow the district to reallocate existing resources without any additional cost to the taxpayer. 


Proposition 2 asks for authorization to expend $5,000,000 from the Building and Facilities Capital Reserve Fund in order to pay the cost of district wide bathroom renovations.
Proposition 3 asks for authorization to expend $350,000 from the Building and Facilities Capital Reserve Fund to pay the cost of construction management services in connection with energy performance contract improvements that will allow the district to install solar carports.


As per the executive order issued by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, voting on the budget, along with the school board and library trustee elections, will take place on June 9, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

 

There will be no voting at the polls; all votes must be cast by absentee ballot only. Ballots will be mailed to all district registered voters beginning May 28, 2020, along with a postage-paid return envelope. The absentee ballots must be received by the District Clerk, Mary Rogers, no later than 5 p.m. on June 9, 2020. Ballots will be accepted by USPS mail, and in a designated ballot lock box— to be located at the east entrance of Howitt Middle School along Van Cott Avenue— on June 8 and June 9 only, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. All ballots will be counted by hand and the date to announce results has not been established yet.

On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, Assistant Principal Jed Herman and ten teachers from Farmingdale High School went out into the community with 500 posters of the senior class of 2020 to ask various stores and businesses to place them in their windows. It’s one of the many ideas administrators are implementing to give graduating seniors the milestone moments they are missing out on because of the pandemic.

“The business owners were more than delighted to display the signs and pose for a picture next to it,” said Student Government Advisor Ivelysse Powers."The funding for the endeavor was provided by the FHS Student Government Association and many other clubs in the building.

A gigantic version of the poster is presently hanging on the outside wall of Farmingdale High School for all to admire, and a collection of photographs of the storefronts can be viewed on the Farmingdale School District’s Facebook page and the FHSDalerPride Instagram account
