Q and A: Paulding County School Board candidate Trudy Sowar

Q and A: Paulding County School Board candidate Trudy Sowar”

Islandwide, proposed spending plans show an average 2.85 percent increase for the coming academic year, to $12.8 billion, while tax collections would grow 2.37 percent, to $8.7 billion.

The Tioga Central School District's budget, which was also detailed by district officials earlier this month, features a tax increase as well - albeit a minute one - of 0.38 percent, which is the state tax cap for the district.

The district also approved agreements with the 400-member Sioux City Educational Support Personnel Association, which represents paraprofessional associates, secretaries and bus assistants; the Sioux City Community School District Bus Drivers Association; and the Operations & Maintenance Employees International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 234.

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.

In recent years, teachers, staff and administration have recognized the increasing needs of mainstream students unable to manage their emotions and behavior. The board room was packed with more than 130 people including students, clergy, activists, alumni and other community members who came out to protest the cancellation.

The Board will recognize Student Representative Juliet Stephenson, an Alhambra High School senior who is one of two students, along with Alan Kobylik, who has been named a Citizen of the Year by the Martinez Chamber of Commerce.

The budget referendum will take place from 8 a.m.to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Madison Town Office.

The proposed tax levy increase is 4.27%, which is below the New York State property tax cap of 4.57% that applies to East Greenbush, requiring a simple majority to pass the budget.

Disregarding opposition from teachers and local leaders, IN lawmakers overwhelmingly voted Monday to strip power from the Gary and Muncie school boards, potentially eliminate the Muncie teachers union and place the district under outside control - and exempt it from required annual performance reports. At the same time, voters will be asked to approve the district's proposed $19.8 million budget. Shawn Smeltzer, is seeking a first term on the Board of Education. He has been a principal in the Schley County School System in Ellaville, Ga., and in Lexington/Richland School District 5 in Irmo.

The next Cody School District budget comes with options for more spending, and school board trustees are already taking advantage.

There are also five candidates vying for three vacant seats on the Board of Education. Gallo was an OUSD board member from 1992-2012. Ficarra noted that debt service is outside the budget. Additionally, the district has forecast a decrease in the tax rate from $11.50 per $1,000 of assessed value to $11.15 per $1,000. Also vying for a seat on the board are newcomers Katrina Talbot Bratge and Denise A. Szarek.
