Building a School Budget for the Future
Developing the annual school budget proposal is a year-round process that involves the Gloversville Board of Education and district and school leaders. On the third Tuesday of each May, that process culminates when residents go to the polls to vote on a school budget proposal for the following year and to elect Board of Education members. Visit this Web page throughout the school year for updates on the annual school budget development process.
The public vote on the 2017-18 proposed budget will be May 16, 2017. Polls will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Gloversville High School and Bleecker Town Hall. Absentee ballots must be received in the Office of the District Clerk by 5 p.m.
