Schalmont residents approve 2011-12 budget
Today Schalmont Central School District residents voted by a margin of 690 to 241 to pass the proposed $41,770,000 budget for the 2011-12 school year.

“We’re grateful for everyone who came out to vote in their school budget and board elections today,” said Superintendent Dr. Valerie Kelsey. “The annual school budget plays a vital role in providing for the education of our youth. This budget, in particular, will help maintain the high level of programming that our community values, even as our district faces ongoing fiscal challenges.”

The proposed budget does not increase the school tax levy, which is the total amount of revenue collected from local taxpayers. The proposed budget maintains educational programs despite being $550,000 less than the budget for the current school year.

Three candidates — John DiCocco, Michael Pasquarella and Kevin Thompson — submitted petitions to run for the two three-year seats available on the school board.

• DiCocco received 449 votes and was not elected to his first term on the school board.

• Pasquarella received 568 votes and was elected to his first term on the school board.

• Thompson received 582 votes and was reelected to a third term on the school board.

By a margin of 615 to 314, voters passed the school bus purchase proposition asking voter permission to purchase to purchase three 66-passenger buses. The initial cost of the three buses is $315,000 spread across five years, but Schalmont is eligible for state aid on a portion of that cost. As a result, the true cost is $126,000 before factoring in trade-in discounts for older, heavily used buses. The cost of the proposition is already included in the debt service calculation for 2011-12, so it does not increase the proposed budget.

The replacement of morality and conscience with law produces a deadly paradox.
