Byram Hills School District Budget Passes

The Byram Hills School District’s 2021-2022 Budget was approved by the community voters on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.

The results were:  344 YES / 70 NO.

The Byram Hills Board of Education had two open seats to fill - each for a three-year term.  Mr. Scott Levy, current Byram Hills Board of Education Trustee, was re-elected and Mr. Petrie Verma, the District’s current PTSA President, was elected to serve as a new trustee on the Board.

“Our efforts remained focused on the impact of the budget on students and our taxpayers, with a budget-to-budget increase of .75% and a 1% tax levy, resulting in a budget that is 1.57% below the permissible tax levy limit,” said Dr. Jen Lamia, Byram Hills Superintendent. Over the past five years, the District has stayed below the permissible tax cap by over 3.9M. The budget supports programs and opportunities in our schools that have brought Byram Hills much success.   Thank you to our community for your continued support.
