about the district
School board elections, other propositions will also be on May 15 school budget vote ballot
On Tuesday, May 15, Unadilla Valley Central School District residents will vote on a proposed $20.2 million budget for the 2018-19 school year. 
For more information on the school budget, please see this budget article.
Voters will decide on a proposition for a five-year lease for four 70-passenger school buses at an estimated cost not to exceed $86,000 per year. The bus leasing plan does not have an impact on the property tax levy and is the sixth year of the lease program. These buses will replace those leased in the first year of the program. There is also a separate library proposition to fund the New Berlin Public Library. 

Voters will select two board of education members on May 15. There are two incumbents running for reelection—Mark Davis and Carrie Meade. The board terms are for three years, and the positions are unpaid. There are no other candidates, although write-in votes are accepted.
The plan has a tax levy increase of $63,761, or 1.50 percent, which meets the district’s state-mandated tax levy limit. The proposed budget has an overall spending increase of $848,549 or 4.39 percent.
A 2.26 percent increase in state aid over the current year will enable the district to continue all academic programming, extracurricular activities and athletics. UV continues to evaluate efficiencies in all areas of operation, as well as focus on improving academics through professional development and collaboration with the community.
