Many regional districts are successful on school budgets
It was the time of the school budget elections yesterday in our listening zone. With some results still being tabulated, it appears district voters across the region were in a positive mood about approving the school’s budget proposals, some with a wide margin.
The Oneonta school district was one of the most important proposals approved by voters. It was passed by 280 to 78 votes. The Oneonta Town School District also approved the purchase of two buses. Susan Kurkowski and Michael Iannelli were elected to the school board.
In the Central School District of South Kortright, the budget was passed by 186 yes votes to 61 no votes. Brian Dengler defeated Barb Hanselman for the school board position by a vote of 157-90.
The Walton Central School budget was passed 261 to 88, and there was also approval to lease three school buses. Ronda Williams, Tammie Tweedie and Alan Budine were elected to the school board. A vote for approval of the Ogden Free Library’s budget was also on the ballot. He also passed, 236-114.
At Worcester Central School, the vote to pass the school budget was 126 yes to 54 no. A vote to purchase a new school bus was approved and William Fisher won the election to the Worcester Central School Board.
Franklin Central School’s budget was passed by 135 to 23 votes.
Other school districts that adopted their budgets included Jefferson Central School, Schenevus Central School, Andes Central School, Sidney Central School and many more.
In the school districts of the Tri-County area, the approval of school district budgets was overwhelming.
The above results were found on the selected school’s Facebook pages and in press releases. Please check your own school district to find the results of school budgets, bus proposals, construction projects and the results of yesterday’s school board election.
