Muskegon School Board expected to vote on cuts

Voting on the Shelter Island School District's $11.7 million budget takes place tomorrow. And in Wyoming County, 2,053 people voted on budgets for school districts with a total enrollment of 5,790 students. Mitchell's policy is patterned heavily on a model policy drafted by the Associated School Boards of South Dakota. Student enrollment has increased by almost 1,000 students in the same period of time.

Disregarding opposition from teachers and local leaders, IN lawmakers overwhelmingly voted Monday to strip power from the Gary and Muncie school boards, potentially eliminate the Muncie teachers union and place the district under outside control - and exempt it from required annual performance reports.

According to the district website, highlights of the budget include the hiring of 12 new positions (Reading teacher, high school teacher, three special education teachers, two assistant principals, one teaching assistant, two teacher aids, one adaptive physical education teacher, and one security staffer), additional BOCES services, and the continuation of a Parent Engagement Initiative and a Community Involvement program.

The board will vote this Monday whether to approve the tentative budget.

The board will also vote Monday whether to accept a $280,000 bid from Horizon Construction Group Inc. of Sandy Lake to fix the high school retaining wall.

Polls are open until 9 p.m.in most school districts. Shawn Smeltzer, is seeking a first term on the Board of Education. The candidates include Christopher Brewer, Sean Finnerty and incumbent Melissa Palmer.

However, the district will still be subject to federal law, which requires releasing a rating based on test scores, graduation rates, and other student and school achievement data.

The local taxpayer share of that tab is $1.33 billion. Any increase to the tax rate will be offset significantly by lowered maintenance costs, the district said in its budget newsletter.

WESTMORELAND - Westmoreland Central School Board of Education will present a proposed $22.1 million 2018-19 budget calling for a 2.54 percent increase in spending and less than a 1 percent increase in the amount to be raised by taxes. A child who can not manage his or her emotions may throw things across the room, swear, spit, and become so agitated and volatile that the rest of the class is forced to leave the classroom for their own safety.

There are two candidates for the two open seats on the School Board. Gallo was an OUSD board member from 1992-2012.

In Bridgehampton, voters will be asked to approve a $16.3 million budget next week-with a almost 14 percent increase in spending-and the three Board of Education incumbents in Bridgehampton will be enjoying a free run to keep their seats on the seven-member board. Also vying for a seat on the board are newcomers Katrina Talbot Bratge and Denise A. Szarek.
