The board room was packed with more than 130 people including students, clergy, activists, alumni and other community members who came out to protest the cancellation. "It makes me upset because all those teaching positions are very important to the kids at the school system", he said.

Voters will decide on the district's proposed $15,347,877 spending plan for the 2018-19 school year as well as the election of two members to the Board of Education, one vacancy is for a three-year term commencing July 1, 2018 and concluding June 30, 2021, and one vacancy is for a two-year term commencing July 1, 2018 and concluding June 30, 2020.

The Martinez Unified School District Board of Education will meet at 5 p.m. Monday in a closed session to consider labor matters and whether to expel certain students. Heather Soroka, now serves as vice president of the school board and is seeking a second term on the Board of Education. "Regrettably, the NYS funding formula is no longer sustainable for small districts such as Greene Central School".

"Doing so would allow you as a board and administration to address these pressing concerns and give you time as a board to look at alternative plans to save the $1 million that closing a school would put back into the general fund", he said.

The district's state aid has increased by 3.32 percent, or about $465,000, while the local tax revenue will grow about approximately $14,000 with the tax hike.

The information shared by the 10 candidates running for three board seats was enlightening. They marched on State Street on an nearly three-mile route to the school district office. The candidates include Kaitlyn Gambina of Mastic, Danielle Warsaw of Manor Park, Marion Diener of Manorville, Larry Brown Jr. of Manorville, Christine Burst of Eastport and Tara Mazovec of South Manor.

Israel hits dozens of 'Iranian' targets in Syria after rocket fire
Repeated airstrikes attributed to Israel have killed Iranian fighters and prompted threats of reprisal from Tehran. They came after 20 rockets were fired at Israeli military positions in the occupied Golan Heights.

With school districts restricted in how much they can raise the tax levy, voters have less fear of high tax increases. Jason Shover, an incumbent, is running unopposed for his seat. "It would be an addition of around $311,000 in this year's budget".

Gary public schools will continue to be run by its emergency manager, Peggy Hinckley, a former interim superintendent in Indianapolis Public Schools.

The proposed tax rate means if you own a $300,000 house, for example, you would pay $2,360.70 in county property tax next year, or $57 more than you did this year. The board also shaved a mill off the tax rate past year.

Polls will be open in the Montauk School library from 2 to 8 p.m.

District spokeswoman Rachel Strauch-Nelson said the policy change is part of a routine update of policies and is meant to "codify the board's current ways of working". At that time, Sprint awarded the district 250 lines of service, which have been used by middle school students.

Voters will also be electing two members to the Board of Education Tuesday.
