Tax Levy History

Dear Clarkstown School Community:

We hope this communication finds you and your family members healthy and in good spirits.

The purpose of this letter is to provide clarity and accuracy as it pertains to matters involving the 2020-21 Clarkstown Central School District Budget. Specifically, it has come to our attention that inaccurate information has been shared by some in our community via a robocall communication, stating that CCSD School taxes have increased by 30% over the last 6 years.

This information shared in the robocall communication is inaccurate.

Instead, the correct average annual Tax Levy Increase has been 1.6% over the past 6 years: 

  • 2020-21 - 1.40% proposed
  • 2019-20 - 2.27%
  • 2018-19 - 2.08%
  • 2017-18 - 1.91%
  • 2016-17 - 0.12%
  • 2015-16-  1.84%

Please visit our website for additional information regarding the 2020-21 budget along with past budget information

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Signature
