School Budget Approved

DeDomenico and Bratone Childs Elected

Dear Pelham Community,


We are pleased to share that the 2020-21 proposed school budget was approved by voters 1,388-691. The cost reallocation proposition was also approved 1,675-447 and Jessica DeDomenico (1,767 votes) and Sue Bratone Childs (1,692 votes) were both elected to three-year terms on the Board of Education.


As a District, we face a very uncertain future as we prepare for next school year. This budget provides the resources that are necessary to ensure our students receive the education they deserve, and the support they need. I want to thank the voters for your incredible support of our schools during this difficult time. We recognize the challenges that our residents are facing, including the economic pain so many now are experiencing and feel fortunate to have a community that values a strong educational system for our students.


I would also like to thank our elections staff and inspectors, as well as our facilities team, who have worked tirelessly over the past several weeks, and especially over the past three days, to ensure that votes were counted accurately.


Thank you again for your continued support.


With Gratitude,


Cheryl H. Champ

Superintendent of Schools
