Letter to the Editor: PTC Supports the School Budget and the Bond

letter to the editorDear Editor,
As the 2023-2024 budget and auditorium bond issuance vote approaches on May 16th, the Parent Teacher Council (PTC) Executive Committee, PTC Budget Study Chairs and all seven PTA Executive Committees would like to reiterate our support and encourage all eligible community members to VOTE YES on the budget and the bond issuance.

In November 2022, the PTC Executive Committee and Budget Study Chairs identified four priority budget categories: delivery of educational services; safety and security, including a transportation study; upgraded facilities; and sustainability. The proposed budget addresses all four of these categories in a fiscally responsible manner.

Additionally, earlier this year, the high school administration presented a detailed overview of the condition of the high school auditorium and the need for a long overdue renovation. All roads in this school community lead to the high school. All Scarsdale students and the broader community will reap the benefits of this renovation. We support the proposal to fund this renovation via bond issuance.

The PTC Executive Committee and Budget Study Chairs encourage the community to VOTE YES on both the Budget and the Auditorium Bond on May 16th from 7:00am - 9:00pm at Scarsdale Middle School.
Thank you,

Lauren Grossberg, PTC President
Leah Dembitzer, PTC President Elect

Rokaya Hassaballa, PTC Treasurer
