With final approval of the budget, about $97 million would be in the general fund. State financial aid of $17.04 million is the budget's biggest source of revenue.

A debate, four months in the making, is settled Monday night between the Sioux City Community School District, and it's teachers. Torres and several other OUSD directors said they weren't told about the city's impending sale of the property to the charter school until last week, when it came before the city council's community and economic development committee.

"The school board might be within its rights to make requesters of large requests pay a fee for records even if they serve on the school board".

Spending among the 34 districts in Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties totals $2.46 billion for the coming school year. District voters will additionally be voting on a proposed $21.2 million budget.

Polls will open at 7 a.m.in Kingston and Middletown, but at noon in Newburgh.

The proposed tax rate means if you own a $300,000 house, for example, you would pay $2,360.70 in county property tax next year, or $57 more than you did this year. The candidates are: Melinda Leising, Donna Durr Arancio and Samuel Catterson. "Regrettably, the NYS funding formula is no longer sustainable for small districts such as Greene Central School".

The county manager's proposed budget also includes $3.7 million to continue the expansion of pre-K support, bringing the total amount spent on the program to $5.2 million.

The Board of Education Monday will accept a donation from Sprint of 300 lines of cellular internet service when it meets at 6 p.m.in the Education Service Center, 1516 Washington St.

David Tepper Expected To Sign Deal To Buy Carolina Panthers
Tepper founded Appaloosa Management, a hedge fund company based in Miami Beach, Florida, and is worth an estimated $11 billion. It was reported on May 11 that Tepper was the favorite in the bidding process over SC financier Ben Navarro.

The additional funds were initially for three additional school-resource officers.

Voters will also be electing two members to the Board of Education Tuesday.

"I always get nervous when we do a conservative budget, and this is a conservative budget and we're doing it in uncertain time", said school board member Natalie Beyer.

Most of the local districts have kept any project tax levy increase within the state mandated limit.

The bus proposition is to buy two 66-passenger school buses at a cost not to exceed $229,241 less trade in value. The proposed purchase is part of an ongoing bus replacement plan created to keep the District's fleet in safe, working order by phasing out buses that are no longer cost effective to maintain.

Ficarra and Downey emphasized that the $91 million in facilities renovations included no "like to haves" or "wish we hads" but was a very basic plan to fix facilities for the "health and safety" of the children.

In addition, there are three candidates for three available Board of Education seats. Incumbent Kathleen Lynch is seeking a second three-year term.
