Residents in the Dryden Central School District will head to the polls Tuesday to vote on a proposed budget for next year.
The school board adopted a $37 million spending plan in April.
Dryden Superintendent Sandy Sherwood says they were able to close a $650,000 budget deficit without having to lay off any teachers.
“Through the use of the increase in state aid, but also through using some of our fund balance and reserves,” Sherwood said.
The proposed budget includes a tax levy increase of 2.8 percent.
Sherwood says the information to calculate the property tax rate won’t be available until August.
Last year’s budget resulted in a roughly $20 increase for the average $100,000 home.
