Dear District Residents,
For New Rochelle, 2018 began with heartbreak. January was a difficult month for the City School District of New Rochelle and the community. As we offered our hearts to the families affected by tragedy, we redoubled our commitment to providing our students with the best education possible in a safe and healthy environment.
We are taking security measures to ensure the safety of students and staff, which is and will remain our top priority. These measures are about more than preventing future incidents. They are about creating a space – an entire community – where our children, adolescents and young adults can learn, explore, build friendships and discover all that they can be. This goal is the school district’s guiding light as it crafts the 2018-2019 proposed school budget.
The District is also moving ahead to a key stage in our four-phase, four-year $106.5 million bond construction project to restore our school buildings from the locker rooms to the playgrounds to the planetarium at New Rochelle High School.
We are in the middle of budget season but the proposed school budget is expected to maintain existing programs, support ongoing professional development and add needed positions. It will allow for an increased investment in the school district’s safety and security measures. It will include measures such as additional social workers, school psychologists and counselors to better meet the social and emotional needs of students and to foster a positive school culture and climate.
The Board of Education will vote on the adoption of a proposed budget on April 17. The budget will then go before voters in New Rochelle, who will have their say on Tuesday, May 15. Please mark your calendar and make your vote count.
