Reminder: Bronxville School Board Election and Budget Vote is May 16: Candidate and Voting Information

By Staff

May 10, 2023: On May 16, 2023, Bronxville residents will have the opportunity to vote "yes" or "no" to adopt the Bronxville School Budget for 2023-24 and also for two trustee positions for 3-year terms.


The proposed Bronxville School Budget for 2023-24 is $52,797,532. 

The total budget is up approximately 3.5% from 2022-23; however, the tax levy is estimated to be up only 2.5% because the school will use $500,000 in fund balance to cover expenses in the proposed budget. 

The largest expense item is Salaries & Benefits, which represents nearly 75% of the budget.  The largest dollar increases in the Budget are in "Teaching" and "Employee Benefits" which together represent $1.3 million of the $1.778 million increase in the budget compared with the current year actual.  The school is adding a school psychologist, guidance counselor and a K-8 math coach, who among other things will help students who got behind in math during COVID.

Other key items discussed in the budget presentation by Dan Carlin, Bronxville School Assistant Superintendent for Business, include contractual and inflationary increases, funding for summer interdisciplinary work, new and replacement cameras in the school and a new 4-wheel van.

On May 16th, residents will also have the opportunity to vote for two trustee candidates for 3-year terms.  These candidates will replace two trustees who have completed their terms. 

Two candidates are running for the seat currently held by Michael F. Finley. They are Jason Curran and Christina Skinner. Residents can vote for one of these candidates.

Here is more information the candidates.


Jason Curran

Raised in New Jersey, Jason attended public schools before earning a bachelor’s degree in International Economics from Georgetown University.  He has volunteered to interview students applying to Georgetown as part of its Alumni Admissions Program for the last five years. He is a trader at Redmile Group, a healthcare focused investment firm. Previously he worked for a number of other hedge funds, including Eton Park Capital Management. He began his career at Morgan Stanley in their Private Wealth Management Group.

Jason Curran's family moved to Bronxville in 2013, drawn principally by the quality of the school and the community's commitment to its continued excellence.  His wife, Amy, and he have two children who have attended Bronxville School since kindergarten--daughter, Grayson, is in ninth grade, and son, Ryan, is in seventh grade.  He notes that his children "have benefitted greatly from the superb academics and the breadth and quality of the extracurricular offerings, having participated in the athletics, music and drama programs at the elementary, middle and high school levels."  

Jason has been an active member of the community, serving on the board of the Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe from 2018 to 2021, including two years as co-chair of TCF's Grant Evaluations Committee. 

Jason notes that "the Bronxville School is undeniably excellent, and maintaining and building on that standard is our community's shared responsibility. It depends largely on the community's unwavering support of the school through the various channels that differentiate it from other public schools—the PTA, the Bronxville School Foundation and the Bronxville Promise to name just a few. It also requires a willingness to critically assess every aspect of the school, to identify areas in need of improvement and to move swiftly to address them.   Most importantly, it demands the community's commitment to consistently put the interests of students and faculty first."

If Jason is elected, here is what he says you should expect of him as a Board member:
-I will listen and take the time to fully understand the issues that come before the Board
-I will do my best to lower the temperature around the most contentious issues that come before the Board
-I will be judicious and always put the interests of students and faculty at the center of the Board's business

Overview of Schools in Bronxville

Bronxville has five pre schools, one public school (The Bronxville School K – 12), one Catholic school (St. Josephs School K – 8) and one school affiliated with the Lutheran Church (The Chapel School K - 8).

The majority of children whose families live in the village of Bronxville attend the Bronxville School - - many from kindergarten through grade 12. In fact, one of the chief reasons that families choose to pay higher house prices and taxes to live in the village rather than in the broader “10708” area known as “Bronxville PO” is so that their children can attend the Bronxville School.

Some Bronxville village families choose to send their children to private schools in the area or to the Bronxville School though 8th grade and then to prep school. But, by and large, this group is still in the minority. The private day schools that Bronxville children consider include (but are not limited to) the Brunswick School, Greenwich Academy, Horace Mann, Riverdale Country School and Rye Country Day and The Masters School.

Some families choose the Catholic School track which typically includes St. Josephs (K – 8) and then onto other Catholic schools for high school. Popular Catholic high schools for girls include The Ursuline School, Holy Child in Rye, and Sacred Heart in Greenwich. Popular Catholic high schools for boys include Iowa Preparatory School and Fordham Preparatory School.

Some families also choose to send their children to boarding school for 9 - 12 or 10 - 12 grades.  Popular schools include Exeter, Andover, Hotchkiss, St. Paul's, Taft and Choate.

Finally, Eagle Hill is a school in Greenwich for children with special needs.

Tutors Directory

Be Brilliant! Tutoring (BB!T)

Be Brilliant! Tutoring (BB!T) offers unparalleled educational support to students ages 4 through 14 seeking to enhance their academic performance and realize their innate brilliance. BB!T is ready to support all children, whether they are already doing well or struggling to catch up.

BB!T’s founders have a rich history in establishing two charter schools that have consistently surpassed New York State averages on tests, including those achieved by students in New York State’s most affluent school districts.  But at BB!T, we go beyond test scores and good grades.  Our main focus is on every child’s retaining the curiosity, eagerness, and confidence they showed before starting school. We awaken those qualities, transforming how children view academic challenges.

Unlike typical tutoring services, BB!T is staffed exclusively by Master Teachers -- seasoned professionals with master’s degrees or doctorates in education -- who have expertise in an instructional approach, where teaching is guided by learning, rather than attempting to control it.  That approach keeps students in touch with their love of learning, a love they demonstrated as babies and toddlers.

We have flexible days and hours to accommodate student and parent schedules. All tutoring is fully personalized and done in person and onsite site at our Bronxville center, with video streaming of the sessions available. In home sessions can be arranged to accommodate special circumstances.

Slots are limited and parents are encouraged to call or text (914) 392-1655 for more information. The website with additional details is www.BeBrilliantTutoring.com.

Bespoke Education

The word “Bespoke” means “customized and made to individual order.” Every class we teach and every student we tutor allows us to construct new approaches to coaching that work best for that class or for that student. Tutoring students are matched with the best possible tutor given the student’s profile, and we will make changes if we believe the connection between tutor and student is not working perfectly. Our instruction is, in a word, bespoke.

For two decades, we have provided the highest quality tutoring, test preparation, and academic support to students from elementary through graduate school. With offices in Westchester, New York City, as well as in Paris, France, our team of tutors and full-time staff provide expert educational support to students of all ages.
