On May 21, Poland Central School District voters approved the district’s $17,976,506 budget for the 2024-25 school year. Residents also elected one board of education member.


The budget proposition passed with 80.95% voter approval; 102 yes votes and 24 no votes.


Compared to the 2023-24 school year, the proposal carries a tax levy increase of 2.00%, which is below the district's calculated tax levy limit of 2.44%. The overall plan calls for a spending increase of  $444,713 or 2.54%.
