Yesterday, on the day of the widely promoted, wildly successful Hudson Children's Book Festival, now in its eleventh year, HudsonValley360 reported that the Hudson City School District was on the list of fifty school districts in upstate New York with the lowest SAT scores in 2018, a distinction shared with Cairo-Durham Central School District: "Hudson, C-D among lowest SAT-scoring districts in upstate New York." According to a report released by the New York State Department of Education, HCSD students scored an average of 520 on the reading and writing portion of the test, and 501 in math. Each section of the test is scored in a range from 200 to 800.
Of related interest, on May 21, voters in the Hudson City School District will be asked to approve the budget for 2019-2020. The total budget is $49,792,463; the amount to be raised from property taxes is $23,672,443.
