Scotia-Glenville CSD budget approved by voters

On Tuesday, Scotia-Glenville Central School District voters approved the district’s proposed $62,959,582 budget for the 2023-24 school year by a margin of 823-223; and elected Karnjit Singh (678 votes), Kimberly Boucher Furnish (695 votes), and Pamela Carbone (629 votes) to serve three-year terms on the Board of Education. 80% of voters also approved a proposition to purchase one 72-passenger school bus, one 57-passenger bus with wheelchair capacity, and one Suburban.

Because the proposed tax levy increase of 2.99% or $941,814 meets the district’s allowable limit under the state’s property tax cap law, a simple majority vote (50% plus one vote) was needed to approve the budget. The budget proposal was approved by 79% of voters.

“We appreciate the community’s commitment to children and our schools,” said Superintendent Susan Swartz. “Our budget supports students while being mindful of our taxpayers. We made sure of it.”
