Learn More About the Recent Property Tax "Freeze"
New York lawmakers enacted a temporary property tax “freeze” as part of the 2014-15 state budget. For the subsequent two years, the state will reimburse property tax increases paid by homeowners to school districts and municipalities that stay within their 2 percent tax levy growth caps. The New York State School Boards Association has provided answers to some frequently asked questions about the tax freeze. View the Q&A

eSchool Parent Portal
Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, Columbus Elementary School and Hawthorne Elementary School will be moving to Standards-Based Report Cards.  The new report cards, along with student homeroom and schedule will be posted online on our eSchool Parent Portal. This information will no longer be sent home.  To access your child’s report card, homeroom, and schedule, you will need to sign up for the Parent Portal.

Westlake High School and Westlake Middle School already use the Parent Portal to deliver their report cards.  If you already have a Parent Portal account, you do not need to sign up again.
