Among the other votes closely watched was in the Fairport School District, where the proposed budget cut 38 positions including 26 teachers.

Transportation expenses will outweigh revenues by about $45,000 this year - $622,167 in revenue and $667,607 in expenses, but reserves will have the fund sitting at $1.275 million by the end of the fiscal year.

Proposed school budget increases in Goshen and Chester, up for a vote on Tuesday, are modest, both falling below the state-mandated tax cap. A proposition to purchase three buses passed 324-65, and a proposition to establish a $500,000 capital reserve fund passed 312-76. Heather Welch received 694 votes; Alan Barone drew 67.

The vote was 3,687 people in favor of the budget, 3,207 against. Of the three candidates vying for the school board's only vacancy, Steven Smith was declared the victor, with 227 votes.

The library budget passed with 2,083 votes (4.6%). The two school board seats went to the only two running, Peggy Bush, with 171, and Cynthia Struckle with one more vote than Bush.

Zelich said the district will continue to face budget increases because of annual salary, health insurance and pension increases. If the budget failed to pass for a second time, the district would have to operate on a contingency budget next school year.

For the 2017-18 school year, rather than pre-identifying make up days, the calendar instead states, "if needed, storm days will be made up at the discretion of the school board". Next year, the Christmas break will be December 22 through January 2 - a total of 12 days.

The party will have three newcomers as its Town Board candidates: Manny Vilar for supervisor, and Gerry Larsen and Paul Giardina for council members.

The Wainscott School District's $2.95 million budget for the 2017-18 school year was approved with 31 votes in favor and none against. The budget passed by a vote of 324-70.

A proposition regarding a $9 million capital project was also approved by voters, 811-231. Also when looking at vacation days during the second semester next year, students will get back the President's Day holiday on February 19, as well as an additional day over Easter (March 29-April 2) for a total of five days off for the holiday. "I encourage you to contact our assemblymen and senator about increasing our state funding because it would help greatly with the property taxes", Miller said.

Superintendent Robinson was happy with the budget and the bus proposition results.

The Randolph Central School District proposed a 2017-18 budget of $20,294,455 - a 19.20 percent increase from 2007-08. There is no word on when that vote will take place.

The Lafayette Parish School Board will begin consideration of almost $6 million in cuts, on top of $2 million already proposed.

Lisa Levett was re-elected to her spot on the board of education with 182 votes and Jason ReQua was voted in with 176 votes to fill the open seat.

The second phase of a long-term plan to renovate and upgrade district schools will turn the attention to elementary schools.
