Voters in the Springs School District will be asked to vote on three propositions in addition to the proposed budget and the school board election.
Proposition 2 would authorize the district to execute an instruction contract for the 2015-2020 school years with the East Hampton Union Free School District, which includes an exclusivity clause saving the district 5 percent on its tuition rate.
Proposition 3 would authorize the district to purchase one wheelchair accessible van at a cost not to exceed $76,000.
Proposition 4 would authorize the district to spend $2 million from the capital reserve fund established May 21, 2014 for site improvements to expand on-site vehicular access along Ed Hults Lane between Old Stone Highway and School Street; provisions for modifications and expansion of on-site parking; expanded and improved on-site student drop-off loop; and all grading, drainage, paving, curbing, signage, and other ancillary and incidental work required to be performed in connection with the proposed site improvements. Since the funds to be expended are from the Capital Reserve Fund, approval of this proposition will not require a tax levy upon the real property of the district.
