  • Dallas School Board okays $38.6 million preliminary budget

Elwood, like many districts, chose to hold the tax increase in 2018-19 substantially below the cap limit.

The reduction follows a trend of the board slicing the district's overall property tax rate in recent years.

Also included would be a clause that states If the Inter-local Board does not pass a budget, funding levels would revert back to the previous year's budget.

Bridgehampton voting hours are from 2 to 8 p.m.at the school.

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 a year ago, meaning that no revotes were needed in June.

In other news, Ethan Fick of D'Huy Engineering, the Dallas Intermediate School construction project manager, presented board members with white hard hats with the Dallas logo on the front for an upcoming groundbreaking ceremony on May 24. Under the proposal, security measures will be enhanced in all district buildings and 4.9 full-time equivalent (FTE) positions would be added.

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. The budget proposal would increase the tax levy to voters by approximately $200,000, or 3.4 percent.

In seven games with Eagles, Ajayi accumulated 408 rushing yards and one touchdown on 70 carries. He is on the final year of his rookie contract, which will pay $705,000.

The three closures are expected to save between $2.5 to $3 million total in the overall budget, according to Clark.

Tuckahoe residents can cast their votes from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m.in the Tuckahoe School library.

Education finance experts agreed that a major factor in the growing number of budget approvals has been the state's imposition of tax-cap restrictions, which took effect during the 2012-13 school year. "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".

Under the law, school districts can not raise tax levies more than two percent unless they achieve a super majority approval from voters.

Earlier this month, district officials provided details on the proposed spending plan that was approved by the school board, and the plan includes a tax increase for residents.

The Kershaw County School Board (KCSB) selected its three finalists Thursday night in its search for a new superintendent to replace Dr. He is running to finish the remaining two years of the three-year term. The hotspots will be divided between East, West, and Expo high schools as well as the middle schools based on need. Jason Shover, an incumbent, is running unopposed for his seat. The board would consist of three members of the School Board, two members of the City Council and the Mayor.
