VOORHEESVILLE — The 2014-15 Voorheesville School District budget was approved by the board of education at a meeting on Monday, April 21. The entire board voted in favor of the budget, which is set at $22,713,608.
A survey on the 2014-15 budget should be submitted by March 5 for the budget advisory committee to review. It will remain open online until March 10, when school board members meet next to discuss the budget.
Interim Superintendent Lonnie Palmer recommended the school board make cuts and share services to reduce non-instructional costs at Berne-Knox-Westerlo and offset spending on training for teachers and additional instructors.
GUILDERLAND — The school board at its February meeting adopted a tax break for veterans, heard about progress on a $17 million building project, and gave budget preferences as a prelude to the superintendent’s presentation of her 2014-15 proposal tonight.
The school board has not yet convened a committee that traditionally combs through the spending plan starting in November. In recent meetings, the board and superintendent have discussed a modified timeline for the budget.
