School budget results

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - Updated: 10:14 PM

Staff report

School budgets were approved across Fulton and Montgomery counties, except in Northville, where the budget failed.

Voters in Fonda-Fultonville also rejected a near $20 million capital project bond proposition, and voters in Canajoharie rejected a proposition to levy an annual $100,000 tax for the library at Arkell Hall.

• Greater Amsterdam School District Board of Education incumbents were re-elected to three anticipated vacancies. Nellie Bush garnered 773 votes, Peter Pritchard received 674, and Kent McHeard received 630. Newcomer Andrea Prusky was unsuccessful in her election bid; she received 526. GASD's budget passed 599-301.

• Voters in the Oppenheim Ephratah St. Johnsville Central School District approved the budget by a margin of 572-187. Voters also Tuesday elected Mary Weaver, Stephanie Dye and Jason Romeyn to the board of education.

• Canajoharie Central School District voters rejected a proposal to provide the Canajoharie Library with $100,000 in annual tax based funding; 356 voted yes, while 595 voted against the proposition. District residents voted in support of the school budget by a vote of 559 to 388.

• Fort Plain Central School District residents approved the budget by a vote of 235 to 52.

• While its budget passed, the Fonda-Fultonville Central School District's $19.8 million bond proposal failed by 11 votes. The project garnered 58 percent of the vote, a margin of 462-327, but it needed a super-majority to pass. Superintendent Raymond Colucciello said the district will review the exit poll to determine how to proceed. The district can either present the same proposal to voters once again, or modify it. The budget passed by a margin of 494-279.

• Northville Central School District budget failed by 5 votes. The plan exceeded the state-imposed property tax cap, and needed a super majority of 60 percent to pass. The unofficial tally reported by district officials was 225 yes, 179 no.

• Broadalbin-Perth Central School District budget passed 464-223.

• Mayfield Central School District budget passed 199-53.
