Area voters to decide school budgets, board seats

Waterloo school board receives donated internet service

She says she's always excited when people want to step up and become board members.

Votes can be cast between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m., in the music room of the intermediate school on Leland Lane. 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. As a new board member, I would recommend an annual policy review to ensure that no state or board rule has been overlooked which could require either a new policy or a revision to a current policy, regulation, or administrative procedure.

According to Will Clark, COO of New Haven Public Schools, the board of education voted to close Creed High School, New Light High School and New Horizons High School at the end of the school year. A handful of school board members are interested in expanding lunch time and recess.

Incumbent Heather Carriero has opted not to seek another term.

A full 100 percent of districts' spending plans in Nassau and Suffolk counties - 124 budgets in all - passed in the initial round of balloting at this time past year, meaning that no revotes were needed in June. In 2015, Pacific West Communities, which specializes in building charter schools and affordable housing, approached city staff with an unsolicited plan to buy the land and assemble it with other adjacent, privately owned parcels to build a charter school for Aspire.

The district is also seeing a significant rise in its special education budget, which is up to $1.62 million from $1.56 million.

Factoring in this loss of wages brings the average pay bump down to just.56% of an increase.


Voting will be from 2 to 8 p.m.at the Quogue School.

One noticeable development can be seen in the surprisingly high number of candidates running for school board seats.

The fright factor now may be that voter disinterest could result in school boards being less accountable to the citizens they represent. The candidates include Kaitlyn Gambina of Mastic, Danielle Warsaw of Manor Park, Marion Diener of Manorville, Larry Brown Jr. of Manorville, Christine Burst of Eastport and Tara Mazovec of South Manor. Previously she served as vice president of the South Manor Board of Education and spent time as a member of the Eastport South Manor Centralized High School Board of Education.

In the Troy City School District, voters will decide upon a $111,893,389 budget, with a tax levy of $36, 832,473.

Lilley has worked for the school district for nine years.

Only one district, the 645-student Greenport system on the Island's semirural North Fork, is seeking to override its cap limit this year - and it has done so successfully twice before.
