The Owego Apalachin School District Board of Education is taking into consideration the next steps following the May 21 defeat of the proposed school budget.

A public budget workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, May 28 at 6 p.m. with a Board of Education meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. May 30.  Both meetings will be held in the Owego Apalachin District Office.

According to the district, the rejected budget proposal called for a tax increase within the allowable New York State tax cap of 3.83% on the levy.
