Cobleskill-Richmondville Residents Overwhelmingly Approve School Budget

Written By Editor on 5/20/14 | 5/20/14

With over 70% of district residents in support, the proposed $37.5 million Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School budget was overwhelmingly approved by voters Tuesday afternoon. The budget, which will raise property school taxes by 2.36%, was passed 684-252. 

According to a news bulletin published on the school district's website, the proposed budget "retains all staff and current programming and opportunities for students but also adds additional part-time sixth grade teachers to eliminate some sixth grade study halls." 

Additionally, voters also approved the Community Library budget 683-252 and elected three unopposed candidates to the CRCS Board of Education, all of whom received six hundred plus votes in their successful campaigns. 

Discussion of Local School Issues Thursday at Golding

Written By Editor on 1/17/14 | 1/17/14

The school districts of the County are joining together in an effort to let the public know about issues currently affecting local school districts. The County Superintendents' Council and the School Boards' Association are hosting an event next Thursday, January 23rd at 6:30 at Golding Middle School.

The effort will have a presentation from Dr. Rick Timbs about local issues and difficulties faced by rural school districts.
“Schools across New York are facing a financial crisis, but none so much as rural schools like Cobleskill-Richmondville and other Schoharie County districts,” said C-RCS Superintendent Lynn Macan. “We need to come together as a community and a county to educate ourselves and our legislators on the glaring fact that rural schools are continually under-funded because of inequitable formulas, the Gap Elimination Adjustment, and unfunded mandates imposed by the state.” 
Dr. Timbs will share research illustrating how rural New York state districts continually receive inequitable and insufficient funds in comparison to the rest of the state and what this means for the futures of school districts such as ours.
