    BCSD Budget Reminder

    The budget vote is Tuesday, May 17th from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm.  City of Beacon residents vote at Beacon High School and Town of Fishkill residents vote at Glenham Elementary.  

    More information about our budget can be found here: https://www.beaconk12.org/domain/583

    I believe our budget supports small class sizes, arts, music, athletics, extracurriculars, the expansion of pre-k, additional electives at the high school, and mental health supports.  It was developed with input from stakeholders and in collaboration with our Board of Education.  Let me know if you have any questions.
