For the past several years, the district has had to reassign incoming kindergarten students to Lincoln and Sacandaga to even out the increase of incoming students at Glendaal and Glen Worden.
The budget also includes funds for a full-time middle school foreign language teacher, a part-time art teacher, which will allow kindergarten students to have art education; a part-time physical education teacher; and several part-time teaching assistants.
"Many areas of the budget, such as health care, heating costs and special education came in under budget," said Swartz.
The budget and candidates for two seats on the board will go before the public at a hearing at the middle school on Wednesday, May 2. The community will vote on the budget and the open school board seats May 15.""
