Smith said each finalist will spend one day in the district touring schools and the community and interacting with board members, employees and the public. It is now available on the school district website for feedback.

Of those, about 48% of the districts have proposed raising taxes by ever dollar they can without breaking the tax cap, according to date from the State Education Department.

This year, school elections lack the drama they once held. The largest source of budget revenue is state financial aid, at more than $37 million.

Polls are open until 9 p.m.in most school districts.

In New Rochelle, the budget will need at least 60 percent of voters to approve the spending plan in order to pass. The tax levy, or amount to be raised by taxes, is $15,362,467, an increase of $286,166, or 1.90 percent.

The St. Tammany Parish School Board is poised to reduce property taxes this year - the second year in a row. The candidates are: Melinda Leising, Donna Durr Arancio and Samuel Catterson.

Madison School Board members could be blocked from requesting information about the school district they are elected to govern under a proposal board members are scheduled to discuss Monday.

In Sagaponack, voting continues until 8:30 p.m.

Running for three seats on the Troy City School District Board of Education are Elizabeth Poleto (An incumbent), along with Stephanie Fitch, and Matthew Flowers Jr.

When it comes to prioritizing and implementing plans to address student performance outcomes, the board scored the school chief as "effective", noting that while she's come up with a plan to review special education and English language learning, it had yet to receive her specific recommendations for improvement. "So in a sense, for the next ten years we could do $100 million of fix and maintenance to our school buildings and not have to borrow".

In Springs, voters will be asked to reelect Springs School Board President Barbara Dayton along with the school's proposed $28.87 million budget for the 2018-19 school year. District voters will additionally be voting on a proposed $21.2 million budget. Yielding a projected tax increase of 1.81 percent, the allowable limit for Remsen this year. The proposed 2018-19 budget is $69.8 million, the purchase of a Springs-Fireplace Road property for a bus depot is on the ballot, and three candidates are running for two seats on the board.

The spending plan doesn't include a tax increase. Those results marked a record, although approval rates have climbed steadily during the past six years, both in the two-county region and statewide. Shawn Smeltzer, is seeking a first term on the Board of Education.

The local taxpayer share of that tab is $1.33 billion.
