School budget votes scheduled across Rochester area today
(WHAM) - Voters throughout the area head to the polls today to weigh in on their district's school budgets, and to choose who will represent them on the school board.
In Fairport, residents will decide to approve a budget that calls for cutting 28 teacher positions.
The school superintendent says declining enrollment in the district is largely to blame for slashing the positions.
In Pittsford, the district could be getting full day kindergarten if voters approve the school budget.
Pittsford is one of five school districts in the state without full-day kindergarten.
A three year state grant would help Pittsford schools to make this transition.
