York School budget proposes 0.22 percent tax levy increase

School budget votes and school board elections will be held Tuesday. Here residents of the Fayetteville Manlius school district vote in 2012

Parents and students attend a board of education meeting in New Haven on Monday, May 14th, 2018.

A second proposition deals with allowing a senior from the high school to serve as a non-voting member of the school board. It would include office space and an elevator to ensure the office is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Voters across New York State head to the polls Tuesday to vote on their local school budget proposals.

The majority of the work would be at the middle/high school complex, but each building will have upgrades and improvements, the district has said.

One write-in candidate has made known her campaign for that seat. He said, "My position is budgeted for for the year and I haven't done a bit of work for Greene Schools and they've got two other employees that they've hired as interims to do my position so those two positions are un-budgeted for and here they are cutting budgeted positions".

According to the board of education meeting minutes Superintendent Gordon Daniels said the district is very concerned they'll be looking at more cuts next year. Heather Soroka, now serves as vice president of the school board and is seeking a second term on the Board of Education. Three of the seats are for three-year terms.

The next Cody School District budget comes with options for more spending, and school board trustees are already taking advantage. In 2015, Pacific West Communities, which specializes in building charter schools and affordable housing, approached city staff with an unsolicited plan to buy the land and assemble it with other adjacent, privately owned parcels to build a charter school for Aspire.

Rise in school referrals for child mental health treatment
Stress is taking its toll with nearly three quarters of Scots who took part in a survey feeling unable to cope in the past year. More than half of the referrals came from primary schools, where children are under the age of 11, the figures showed.

In the preliminary budget's general fund, there is $711,409 available for any appropriation desired by the trustees, Sarvey said. That's a 2.4 percent increase. Several juniors at Creed spoke before the board, saying they are uncertain about the school they will graduate from. Mitchell Lemaire, who had been a former board member, was appointed to fill a vacancy left by Kelly Flint in September.

In the Troy City School District, voters will decide upon a $111,893,389 budget, with a tax levy of $36, 832,473. It is a large addition to the budget and it makes sense that people would like to understand it better.

The polls are open until 9 p.m.in most communities. School Board member Elizabeth Pucci will not be running for reelection.

"Greene Central School was faced with approximately $900,000 in initial budget shortfall, for the 2018-2019 school year".

A schedule for five followup meetings to take place in schools around the district will be released in the coming days.

The candidates in the remaining districts will have an easier run.

The district's average tax rate would be $13.94 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, up from $13.88 per $1,000 in the current 2017-18 school year. At the same time, voters will be asked to approve the district's proposed $19.8 million budget. Ficarra said that he thought that discussion on district lines "will probably take a couple of months and will probably take lots of debate".
