Current School Budget (2022-23)

On May 17, 2022, Duanesburg voters approved the district’s proposed $18,600,000 budget for the 2022-23 school year by a vote of 547-361, a margin of 60%. The budget reflects a 4.0% ($715,000) increase in spending and a property tax levy increase of 1.8% ($150,945), which is under the district’s tax levy limit or “cap” of 2.62%. A simple majority (more than 50%) was required to pass the budget. 

Voters also approved a proposition allowing the district to purchase two 65-passenger buses and one 30-passenger bus at a cost not to exceed $315,000. The referendum passed by a vote of 577-329. The purchase will allow the district to replace aging buses that have high maintenance needs and maintain a safe fleet of buses for pupil transportation.
