School vote is Tuesday

"You could make a good case the tax cap has really reduced voter turnout", said David Albert, spokesman for the school boards association.

"I am certainly not happy with the 1.89 percent tax increase", Pfender said. Newcomers Glenn Niles and Kerry Cunningham both won board seats in an uncontested race.

His departure was announced without meaningful explanation and comes with a $300,000 price tag, according to the terms of a severance agreement that also forbids board members or Bedden from speaking critically of one another in public.

When school budget is defeated, the school board may decide submit a revised (or, more rarely, unrevised) budget for a second vote, or adopt an austerity budget.

The Clymer Central School District proposed a 2017-18 budget of $11,287,390 - a 20.75 percent increase from 2007-08. The district is estimating that this would result in an annual property tax increase of $53.26 for a home valued at $200,000. Warhit received 1,588 votes (3.5%). The two board seats went to Jeanne Shields and Gary Smith.

In the Jordan-Elbridge district, the budget was approved 386-68, and four people ran for three seats on the board.

Spending for the district increased by about $1.1 million.

Even the $30.48 million improvement project that passed handily in February will have no affect on the tax levy, with a third of the cost coming from the district's capital reserve fund and state aid, and the rest from a 15-year bond offset by state aid. Incumbent school board Trustees Butch Yamali and Jill Levine re-elected.

He also noted that it is "not as important as I used to think". "It's what I would do if starting out today", Gates said. A regret: "I also have one big regret: When I left school, I knew little about the world's worst inequities.

The school budget in Bolton passed by a comfortable margin.

The budget increases year-over-year spending by 4.16 percent - $441,910 - but only increases the district's property tax levy by 1.94 percent - $117,327 - bringing it to $6.2 million.

The State Board of Education has given no indication on when they would consider allowing a new school board to be elected. A proposition to purchase buses passed 212-122.

Board members present approved the preliminary budget unanimously, with three board members, Pat Vigliotta, Helen Schuster and Dave Feely, absent.

Mr. Bistrian and Ms. Quintana were the top two vote getters, with 122 and 115 votes, respectively.

The Southwestern Central School District proposed a 2017-18 budget of $27,366,108 - a 16.22 percent increase from 2007-08. So, in addition to exceeding the tax cap, the budget also cuts 10 teaching positions, increases class size, and cuts core and elective programs. Voters also approved the purchase of school buses and similar vehicles at a maximum cost of $380,000, with 151 voting in favor and 75 voting against.

Voters also approved a proposition authorizing the expenditure of $400,000 from the 2015 renovations and upgrades capital reserve fund for a new gym ceiling.
