New York voters approve all but a handful of school budgets

Polls are now closed.

The school district will collect $1.48 million more in local taxes in 2017-18 than it did in 2016-17. We will update tomorrow.

In Warren County, there was one contested school board race. This year's budget includes around $47 million in state aid, and will also allow the district to hire more faculty, including elementary school teachers at buildings that have higher enrollment numbers as well as a high school math teacher. Warhit received 1,588 votes (3.5%).

The largest spending plan, $162.7 million, in the Lakeland School District, which spans over six towns, including Cortlandt, Somers and Yorktown, easily passed the muster with voters, 915-255.

Supt. Coles noted during the meeting that the school is anticipating receiving less money through grants in the coming year.

Laurens had 168 voting in favor of the budget with 20 voting no.

Many school officials said they delayed budget decisions as long as possible, but now are unable to wait much longer as the legislative session draws to an end and the new fiscal year approaches on July 1. Michelle Lyon (364) and Jim Struble (334) won the two available three-years terms on the school board.

The Weedsport budget passed 375-99.

Oklahoma City Public Schools considered its own school closure plan but community pushback resulted in Superintendent Aurora Lora looking for an alternative. Stanley Swears got 139 votes for school board. 177 voted in favor and 57 voted against. The single school board candidate, Karl Gockel, got 115. That means budgets are passing at a higher rate by fewer and fewer voters.

Voters approved a $30,322,401 budget with 334 votes cast in favor compared to 68 cast against the proposal. Donald Chirlin was elected to the Board of Education with 369 votes. Daniel Buttermann was also elected to the board with 489 votes.

Harpusville School District: $19,883,968 budget passed by a vote 212 to 55.

The Olean Times Herald, in Cattaraugus County, reported on May 9 that the Olean City School District had offered Mr. Moore its superintendent position. The transportation proposition of three 66-passenger buses passed as well. The school board seat went to Ellen Hager, with 91 votes.

She said her experience as a parent to young children will set her apart from other board members.

The spending package in the budget for 2017-18 is up about $217,800 over the current year's budget. Rawleigh garnered 117 votes. Kim Jastremski trailed with 272, as Jeffrey Woeppel with 246 and Bruce Markusen with 148. Julie Abbott-Kenan and Geraly Huba earned three-year terms on the school board. He ran unopposed and received 969 votes. A proposition to establish a capital reserve fund passed 392-82, and funding for Weedsport Public Library passed 367-105.

Others will vote on capital projects that will tackle health and safety issues in district facilities, like at Frontier and Lewiston-Porter, or improvements to arts, athletic and technology facilities, like in Lake Shore.
