A Message from the Board of Education and Superintendent


Dear Longwood School Community,

On Thursday, May 7, the Board of Education adopted a 2020-21 budget to be presented to the community by absentee ballot. This year, the vote will take place exclusively by absentee ballot, which will be mailed to voters with a postage-paid return envelope. The absentee ballots must be received by the District Clerk no later
than 5:00 pm on June 9, 2020.

The $255,600,000 proposed budget seeks a 3.33% tax levy increase, and a 0.04% budget increase, the second-lowest budget to budget increase in the history of Longwood. Once again, the proposed budget remains within the tax cap.

This budget demonstrates our enduring support of innovative learning opportunities for our students to enhance their academic experience, as well as a rigorous curriculum that prepares our students to be college and career ready.

We are living in unprecedented times; yet, we remain a more united, stronger District than ever before. During this school closure, we will continue to provide meals, childcare services for essential workers, and distance learning for our students.

Almost overnight, our dedicated staff came together to provide distance learning for all while focusing on care, connection, and continuity of academics. We are learning to be more flexible and responsive, and through this situation, we are innovating the way we teach and learn.

We are proud of the 20 years of community support for our budget, and we ask you to review the information contained in this newsletter.

While voting looks different this year, now more than ever, your vote – every vote – counts!  As always, we extend our sincere thanks to you for your ongoing support of our
students and our schools. Stay strong; we will get through this together.

Section 203 of the Federal Voting Rights Act requires school districts in Suffolk County to provide all election information in both English and Spanish. In accordance with this act, print materials produced by Longwood Schools pertaining to the 2020-21 School District Election and Budget Vote will be distributed in both languages.
