At the Springs School, polls opened at 7 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. Voters will cast ballots on a almost $28.9 million budget and the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible school bus.

Statewide, school taxes are proposed to increase by about $515 million for the 2018-19 school year.

Today, voters in 12 school districts in Greene and Columbia counties go to the polls to approve or reject budget proposals and elect candidates to their boards of education.

The preliminary budget includes $748,000 for additional pay to teachers if the board and the teachers union resolve the ongoing contract dispute, Business Manager Grant Palfey said. President Kenneth Cooke, who served on the board for nine years, and board member Ginny Chuchin, who will be finishing up her first three-year term, are not seeking reelection.

There are school board candidates on some ballots.

Superintendent Art Tate has asked the board to determine whether it supports Vision 2020 as the platform for the board to respond to the district's School Budget Review Committee and, if not, how the board intends to respond to the committee. 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.

The district also received a hike in state aid of $805,339, which brings the total state aid figure to $20.44 million, or 62.65 percent of the total budget.

The local taxpayer share of that tab is $1.33 billion.

CLINTON - Clinton Central School has proposed a $27.9 million budget, calling for a slight spending increase and amount to be raised by taxes for school year 2018-19.

Voting will be held Tuesday between noon and 9 p.m.at the Vernon Town Offices, Verona Fire Station, and Sherrill Court Facility. The tax levy, or amount to be raised by taxes, is $8,011,795, an increase of $66,738, or 0.84 percent. Also vying for a seat on the board are newcomers Katrina Talbot Bratge and Denise A. Szarek.

There are two candidates for the two open seats on the School Board.

Clark said some of the teaching staff, specifically the ones caring for and monitoring kids who need special services, will be moving with the students.

There are three candidates on the ballot: newcomer Brianne Fadale along with incumbent board members Daniel Johnson and Nina Karbacka.
