Victor schools seeking voter approval for new buses

A bond proposition for $879,000 to buy various buses and vehicles for the Victor Central School District will be included on the ballot in May when voters will be asked to approve the proposed $68.8 million spending plan for 2018-19.

The Board of Education, in a special meeting Thursday, reviewed the third sector of the budget and approved a referendum and legal notice for the bus purchases, calling for the issuance of bond anticipation notes, if approved by voters May 15.

Voters will also be asked to fill two board vacancies created by the upcoming departures of Karen Ballard and Gary Gilbert.

Anyone interested in running for one of the open seats must file nominating petitions in the district office no later than 5 p.m. Monday, April 16.

Jim Haugh, director of human resources, reviewed proposed staffing adjustments for next year, asking for a special education teacher at the early childhood school to help serve an increasing number of referrals at the kindergarten level, a special education teacher to split time between the primary and intermediate schools, and two special education teacher aides each for the junior and senior high schools.
