2018-2019 School Budget Approved 2018-2019 School Budget Approved: SKANEATELES, NY (April 11, 2018) – On Tuesday, April 10, the Skaneateles Central School District’s 2018-2019 budget was adopted by the Board of Education, finalizing the budget adoption process that began in October of 2017. The adopted budget carries an anticipated tax levy increase of 3.75%, although the district’s tax cap for this year was 4.44%.

The newly adopted budget maintains and enhances the programming that has been instituted ...
