WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Voters head to the polls Tuesday to cast their votes either for or against the White Plains school district 2016-17 district budget with a total spending plan of $208,750,000, according to The Examiner.
Assistant Superintendent for Business Fred Seiler met with voters last week in an effort to urge them to approve the budget, saying the majority of the $3 million increase is for instruction and special education, said The Examiner.
Also on the budget is a proposition asking for approval for the school board to establish a $25 million capital project plan focused on future building and infrastructure needs. If approved, the tax levy would increase 0.24 percent, which meets the state's property tax cap, added The Examiner.
