Dear Members of the Blind Brook School Community,
On Tuesday, eligible voters approved the 2018-2019 Blind Brook School District Budget by a 248-53 vote count, an 82.4% pass rate. On behalf of the Board of Education, I wish to thank our entire school community for its ongoing support and trust. I also would like to congratulate Mrs. Ashley R. Welde who was re-elected to serve another three-year term as a member of the Blind Brook Board of Education, and Mr. Scott D. Jaffee who was elected to serve a three-year term as a member of the Board as well.
As has been discussed previously, the School District Budget serves as the financial expression of the educational philosophy of the Blind Brook School District and its Board of Education. It is the most important and fundamental responsibility of financial management. I assure you that we will do everything within our power to carefully use the funds made available to obtain the greatest results to enhance the Blind Brook educational experience at each of our three schools.
Finally, please know that while this School District Budget received tremendous community support, we will not get complacent. We will move forward motivated to provide the best possible education for all Blind Brook children. We will do this being mindful of the need for fiscal prudence and our duty to balance the needs of all community members in the years ahead.
Jonathan Ross, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
