Adequacy Funding

Over the summer, the Department of Education informed school districts that the Adequacy Funds that would be receiving had been recalculated. This recalculation would give each school district additional funds. On August 26, 2021 the Department of Education sent out a final adjusted amount. PSD will be receiving an additional $358,696.76 in adequacy funding in the coming school year.

The citizens of Pittsfield have two options:

  1. To vote to allow the district to expend the funds and support the operations of the School District. If the vote is yes, there will be no increase in the tax rate
  2. To vote not to allow the School District to expend the funds. If the vote is no, the funds will go toward lowering the tax rate that will be set in October.

A public hearing will be held on Thursday, September 23, at 7:00 p.m. in the PMHS media center to vote on the options listed above. For more information, please review the enclosed presentation on Adequacy Funding.
