DOE Superintendent Dr Christina Kishimoto during joint house  senate education hearing at the Capitol

At the Springs School, polls opened at 7 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. Voters will cast ballots on a almost $28.9 million budget and the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible school bus.

Voters will choose four candidates to serve on the Board of Education.

York Central School has proposed a 2018-19 budget of $16,771,418, an increase of $145,192, or 0.8 percent from the current budget.

Today, voters in 12 school districts in Greene and Columbia counties go to the polls to approve or reject budget proposals and elect candidates to their boards of education.

The district's budget woes are due, in part, to a decline in student enrollment.

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

The Board also will be asked to spend some money saved on the construction of Alhambra High School Building K on the Las Juntas Elementary School community play field.

Meanwhile, in NY, school districts will be holding their annual budget votes and school board elections on the same day.

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 proposed budget would increase the tax rate to 13.6338 mills.

Voting will be held Tuesday between noon and 9 p.m.at the Vernon Town Offices, Verona Fire Station, and Sherrill Court Facility.

In East Hampton, three candidates-Incumbent Christina DeSanti and newcomers Jeffrey Erickson and Sarah Minardi-will be vying for two seats on the School Board. Charles Styler of North Sea and Michael Medio of Water Mill-both newcomers-will duke it out for a seat on the seven member board.

The board plans to reject all bids for fix of storm piping and inlets, concrete stairs and the segmental retaining wall as this work was found to be unnecessary, saving the district about $200,000, Superintendent Pat Gavin said.

Board members Catherine Wega, Christine Swailes, Sherri Newell, Larry Schuler, Patrick Musto, Ed Dudick and Susan Allen supported the plan with Gary Youngblood and Kristin Pitarra voting against it.
