Budget and Tax Information

Voters approve 2017-18 budget

By a vote of 421 to 144, residents of the Gloversville Enlarged School District approved the district’s proposed $61,506,612 budget for the 2017-18 school year during the May 16 vote.

The approved budget calls for a 1.51 percent tax levy increase, which stays within the state’s 2 percent “tax cap.”

Because Gloversville will receive $290,197 more in state aid than earlier aid figures showed, the district was able to reduce the amount of reserves it had planned to use to cover the budget gap. However, the 2017-18 budget trims about $1.5 million in district expenditures to keep the spending increase over the 2016-17 budget at 1.08 percent.

The district’s planned reconfiguration of its elementary schools for the 2017-18 school year will save more than $855,000, mostly through staffing reductions. This includes five elementary teachers, one administrator, five custodians, two clerical positions and one nurse.

Declining enrollment also enabled the district to cut nearly $500,000 in expenses, mostly at the high school level. This includes eliminating four high school teaching positions, for a savings of more than $200,000. Enrollment of fewer students in HFM BOCES programs such as the Career and Technical Education and the PTECH schools also will save more than $235,000.

School board elections

Residents also re-elected incumbent Paula Brown-Weinstock (313 votes) and voted in newcomers Sharon P. Poling (396 votes) and John Lott (394 votes) to serve three-year terms on the GESD Board of Education.

Richard Carlson, the current board president, also was seeking another term but was not re-elected. He received 294 votes. Board member E. Lynn Brown did not run for re-election.
