BOE Approves $128 Million Budget With Additional Emergency Funds

At the public hearing on the budget held on Thursday, May 7, the Livingston Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a 2020-21 school year budget of $128,369,023. The meeting was held virtually via Zoom and FaceBook Live.

This budget is $575,000 lower than the tentative budget that the Board adopted on March 18, due to deferral of a proposed parking lot expansion at Hillside School and replacement of strength training equipment at Livingston High School. It is $1.8 million higher than the 2019-20 school year budget, an increase of 1.66 percent. The March 18 budget, which was developed before the coronavirus epidemic, had called for a two percent increase.
