school board

GUILDERLAND — Incumbents Barbara Fraterrigo and Gloria Towle-Hilt are running again for the Guilderland School Board. They are joined by newcomer Teresa Gitto.

Residents have until April 18 to file petitions to run, with a minimum of 25 signatures.

The new superintendent said that, at the next school board meeting, district programs that alleviate harassment will be explained. "Our mantra has been find it and fix it," he said.

BERNE — The Berne-Knox-Westerlo Parent-Teacher Association will be hosting a Meet the Candidates Night on Monday, Feb. 22, at 6:30 p.m. in the secondary school library.  This is the night before the special vote, which will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 23.

The $22.3 million budget, three propositions, and a new board member were all given wide margins in a low turnout.

The two top vote-getters on Tuesday, Christine Hayes and Seema Rivera, are friends and sister graduates of Guilderland.

David Gibson, prior president of the Voorheesville School Board

Marie Wiles, superintendent, Guilderland Central School District

School board candidates — one in Voorheesville and one in Guilderland — have decided not to run in the May 19 elections; both had submitted valid petitions by the April 20 deadline.
