This Tuesday, May 17th, Nyack voters passed the school district’s $80,700,000 2016-2017 budget and voted affirmatively for two propositions regarding the Capital Reserve Fund, which is essentially a “rainy day fund.” The first proposition allows the district to expend up to $5,000,000 (the current balance) from the Capital Reserve Fund, created in 2010 and increased in 2014. The second proposition allows the district to increase the capital reserve fund from $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 and increase the probable term from 10 to 11 years.

Nyack, New York – The debate over whether the Nyack school district should have the authority to administer breathalyzer tests to students exhibiting symptoms of intoxication at school functions continued at last night’s Board of Education meeting. It was the fifth, and perhaps most contentious, meeting in which the topic has been discussed. The result, after nearly two hours of back-and-forth between students, parents, Superintendent James Montesano and the School Board: A successful filibuster.
On Tuesday, October 29, The Nyack Board of Education is asking voters to approve a $26.4 million dollar bond referendum.
Here are two statements supporting and two statements opposing the bond.
In support: David MacCartney, Dr. Don Hammond and Michael Lagana
In opposition: Bryan Burrell, Rick Tannenbaum
