Voters approved the Corning-Painted Post Area School District’s revised budget of $138,061,969 on June 18, after rejecting the original proposal last month. The new budget passed with 1,698 votes in favor and 834 against.

The approved budget for the 2024-2025 fiscal year will decrease the tax rate by 2.68%. This is a significant change from the original budget of $139,181,445, which was voted down on May 21. That budget would have increased the tax rate by 1.91%.

Corning-Painted Post was one of only 19 school districts in New York State to have its budget rejected in the first vote this year. The revised budget’s approval reflects a strong community consensus, passing with 67% support.
