Tuesday is voting day on school district budgets

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

Polls were open Tuesday in many school districts across Long Island for residents to vote on proposed budgets totaling almost $13 billion, along with contested board races featuring 207 candidates in 56 districts.

The cap has resulted in more school budgets being approved because people like budgets that don't raise taxes; the cap has also resulted in fewer people voting on those school budgets, again, because the budgets aren't calling for big tax increases.

She said collaboration with neighboring school districts has helped to keep costs down, though there are a handful of one-time costs contributing to this year's increase.

Meanwhile, in NY, school districts will be holding their annual budget votes and school board elections on the same day.

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.

In the Troy City School District, voters will decide upon a $111,893,389 budget, with a tax levy of $36, 832,473.

Fortifying unprecedented legislation last year that enabled the state to intervene in Gary and Muncie, this year's House Bill 1315 would put the Muncie district under the control of Ball State University, further empower Gary's emergency manager, and effectively turn both districts' elected boards of education into figureheads. Mitchell's policy is patterned heavily on a model policy drafted by the Associated School Boards of South Dakota. They marched on State Street on an nearly three-mile route to the school district office.

For many districts, the proposed 2018-19 budgets provide a chance to restore student programs and services lost during the years immediately following the Great Recession. "The setup of this fund is by us putting in $2 million in cash, we'll be eligible for $98 million of aid [from New York State]".

In an effort to encourage "innovative strategies", the bill would free Ball State from reporting Muncie schools' performance via the annual A-F grades measuring school and district improvement. School tax rates are set after the district receives the final tax assessment roll in August.

The proposed 2018-19 spending plan is $27,894,313, an increase of $489,197, or 1.79 percent over the current budget.

In recent years, teachers, staff and administration have recognized the increasing needs of mainstream students unable to manage their emotions and behavior.

The drop-ins for Robbins and Wilson will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

Residents can cast ballots, and vote on the board's $57.1 million budget, between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.in the high school's large group instruction room.
