Dallas School Board okays $38.6 million preliminary budget

Dallas School Board okays $38.6 million preliminary budget

The Rapid City Area School Board approved the preliminary budget for next school year on Monday night at about $221 million.

The $644.5 million spending plan raises the tax rate 1.9 cents to 78.69 cents per $100,000 of assessed property value.

Shultz said that while voters approved the budget, the margin was more narrow than previous year.

More help is being made available for Waterloo Community Schools' students who don't have access to the internet at home.

Schools that are proposing budgets that exceed the tax cap are required by law to have the approval of 60% of their district voters. The proposed budget of $9,739,213 did not meet the 60 percent supermajority to pass, so a contingency budget of $9,589,502, an increase of 2.36 percent from previous year, will be put into place.

The Mamaroneck school district is also asking voters to override the tax cap.

There were two people running for two open seats in Niagara-Wheatfield.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m.to 9 p.m.

Under the new scale, the average annual teacher salary will increase from $63,637 in this year to $65,038 in fiscal year 2018-19.

In Niskayuna, voters approved a budget that lifted the local tax haul by 2.64 percent, with 1,186 in support and 525 opposedt. Moriarty will earn the remaining three years of a seat vacated by a prior board member. The candidates are: Melinda Leising, Donna Durr Arancio and Samuel Catterson.

Walton Central School District voted in Ronda L. William (320 votes) and Arnold A. Drumm (300 votes) for the two school board seats. Oneida received a 1.86 percent increase in Foundation Aid over the current school year budget. The budget represents a 4.86 percent increase over the 2017-18 budget. An incumbent board member is running unopposed.

Voters will choose four candidates to serve on the Board of Education. The candidates include incumbents Amy Mayo and Brian Judycki and challenger John Stewart. A second proposition authorizes the district to create a new $1.5 million 2018 Building Improvement Fund for repairs and reconstruction as needed to the high school's turf athletic field. "In the very rare instance that a request is very hard to fulfill, we run that request past the board president so they can decide the best way to move forward".

The district's cost is the one-time purchase of 300 hotspot devices to enable the internet connections.

Haas says the district's unreserved fund balance totals $12.7 million. Spending would have gone up 3.7 percent.

Voting in Montauk is from 2 to 8 p.m.at the school.

Voters across New York State head to the polls Tuesday to vote on their local school budget proposals. Casinelli, Lingle and Licht earned seats on the school board.
