The Ithaca City Schol District Board of Education considers budget increase.

In Ithaca, the City School District Board of Education is looking to increase their 2013-2014 budget to $113.7 million.  This is about a 2% increase over the current budget of $111 million.  The result of this budget change would mean higher taxes, with the tax rate increasing by 6.9% and the tax levy by 8.87%. 

Even with this budget increase, there would still be cuts regarding administration, teachers, paraprofessionals and other staff, as well as a $1.9 million reduction in operating costs.

According to Business First’s ranking of public school districts in Upstate New York, based on data from the New York State Education Department, Ithaca in 2013 was ranked #60 out of 429 districts.
