School Board: Schools 'Heading In The Right Direction' Under New Leader

School budget votes and school board elections will be held Tuesday. Here residents of the Fayetteville Manlius school district vote in 2012 School Board: Schools 'Heading In The Right Direction' Under New Leader

Polls are open until 9 p.m.

When it comes to prioritizing and implementing plans to address student performance outcomes, the board scored the school chief as "effective", noting that while she's come up with a plan to review special education and English language learning, it had yet to receive her specific recommendations for improvement.

The Dallas School Board on Monday proposed a $38.6 million preliminary budget with a 1.5 percent increase in the property tax rate.

Today, voters in 12 school districts in Greene and Columbia counties go to the polls to approve or reject budget proposals and elect candidates to their boards of education.

"I feel the preliminary budget does not include all the costs incurred by the district", Youngblood said after the meeting.

Earlier this month, district officials provided details on the proposed spending plan that was approved by the school board, and the plan includes a tax increase for residents.


A full 100 percent of districts' spending plans in Nassau and Suffolk counties - 124 budgets in all - passed in the initial round of balloting at this time past year, meaning that no revotes were needed in June.

Those in the Lansingburgh Central School District will vote on a $50,696,799 budget, representing an 8.59 percent increase.

Apthorpe also said that the primary focus of the 2018-19 budget is to address the district's debt, which takes up more than 10 percent of the budget. Three incumbent board members are running unopposed.

"Doing so would allow you as a board and administration to address these pressing concerns and give you time as a board to look at alternative plans to save the $1 million that closing a school would put back into the general fund", he said.

In Springs, voters will be asked to reelect Springs School Board President Barbara Dayton along with the school's proposed $28.87 million budget for the 2018-19 school year. The seat on the three-member board was vacated by longtime member Joseph Louchheim, publisher of the Press News Group, who decided not to seek reelection after serving three, three-year terms on the board. Charles Styler of North Sea and Michael Medio of Water Mill-both newcomers-will duke it out for a seat on the seven member board. One change involves an additional $180,000 for improved security, board member Susan Allen said.
