The Brooklyn City Schools is asking voters to approve Issue 2, a renewal levy, on the November 2019 ballot that will NOT RAISE TAXES for residents in our community. Successful passage of Issue 2 renews approximately 6.0 mills, or $1,587,121 of annual revenue, for the Brooklyn City School District. The funds that will be renewed by the passage of Issue 2 were first approved by voters in 2015 and will not increase taxes for Brooklyn residents. The District is required to return to the voters in the form of renewal levies so that voters can affirm their continuing support for funding that is already in place. The Brooklyn City Schools Board of Education unanimously approved two compatible resolutions earlier this summer and Issue 2 was designated by the Board of Elections just this past week. Funding renewed by passage of Issue 2 continues vital services and operations of the Brooklyn City Schools, including personnel, technology, performing arts and athletics. The District will be hosting a series of Finance Forums over the next several months, the first of which will take place on Monday, September 30, 2019, at 6 p.m. in the Auditorium of Brooklyn High School. Please plan to attend this first Finance Forum on Monday, September 30, 2019, or visit the levy website, for more information about Issue 2, the Brooklyn City Schools’ no new taxes renewal levy on the November 2019 ballot.
