EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – Despite a low voter turnout, voters in Tuckahoe handily accepted the proposed $32 million schools budget with nearly 75 percent of the vote.

On Tuesday, voters made their voices heard, with 352 “yes” votes against just 123 “no votes” as the budget easily gained their favor. School Board hopeful Henry Caporoso earned 271 votes against Michael Collins’ 190 to earn a seat as a trustee.

The budget includes he elimination of three staff members that took a retirement incentive to allow for a cheaper replacement, and the use of the district fund balance to avoid any further cutting of programs for students.

According to district officials, “the fund balance is the ‘savings’ accumulated by the difference between revenues and expenditures over time. It changes annually based on the results from each year’s operations. It may increase or decrease, depending on many variables.”

Additionally, the budget supports as many as four full-time teachers, an athletic trainer and a facilities consultant. Additionally, various classroom spaces will be re-appropriated to maximize their viability.
