— Communities showed strong support for school district budgets throughout Schenectady County as budgets passed by comfortable margins Tuesday, May 15.

School districts presented proposed 2012-13 budgets for the first time since the state tax cap was in effect. All four school districts in The Spotlight’s coverage area (Niskayuna, Scotia-Glenville, Mohonasen and Schalmont) kept budgets below the tax cap, a number that varied for each district. Bus purchase propositions were also approved by voters in the three districts they were offered in.

In contested Board of Education races, incumbents were re-elected and kept their seats on school boards for another term. There were two uncontested races.

Niskayuna

Niskayuna Central School District voters approved the 2012-13 budget with 2,261 casting votes in favor of the $75.3 million spending plan and 999 opposed. The budget holds a tax levy increase at the district’s maximum allowable limit of 3.29 percent.
