  • Annual school budget vote and board election to be held June 9 by absentee ballot

    In accordance with Executive Order No. 202.26, the Budget Vote and School Board Election will be held by Absentee Ballot only on Tuesday, June 9, 2020.


    Any qualified voter shall be entitled to vote via absentee ballot. To be a qualified voter, you must be a U.S. Citizen, at least 18 years old by June 9, 2020, a New Paltz Central School District resident for at least 30 days prior to June 9th, and not disqualified for any reason set forth in NYS Election Law Section 5-106.


    Registered voters of the District will automatically receive Absentee Ballots by mail. However, due to a significant supply issue with envelopes, absentee ballots have not been mailed yet.  Our vendor is working diligently to resolve this issue. Qualified unregistered voters may request an absentee ballot by completing the Request for Absentee Ballot Form and emailing it to sermo@newpaltz.k12.ny.us. This form should be returned by June 2, 2020.


    All absentee ballots will include a prepaid return envelope. Please remember to sign the ballot envelope.  Due to time constraints, it is important to return your ballot as soon as possible so that it is received by the deadline.  To assist you in doing so, the District will be locating a secure ballot drop-off box at the District office. Further details will be communicated on this page next week.


    Completed ballots must be received by the District by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, 2020.

  • Message from the NPCSD Legislative Action Committee

    We are asking for your help in our effort to preserve funding for the New Paltz Central School District, as well as public schools across the state of New York. New Paltz Central School District wants to be able to have a chance at maintaining the level of staffing and programming we have fought so hard to restore while also being able to absorb unknown additional costs around safety and mental health.
