The Rapid City Area School Board approved the preliminary budget for next school year on Monday night at about $221 million.

The time has come for voters in school districts across the region to decide on 2018-19 school budgets.

Voters will also be electing two members to the Board of Education Tuesday.

Ethan Fick of D'Huy Engineering hands out hard hats to the Dallas School Board members in preparation of the upcoming Dallas Intermediate School groundbreaking ceremony on May 24.

Incumbent Heather Carriero has opted not to seek another term.

In the Board of Education race, four candidates are vying for one seat with a three-year term: Dean Button, of 15 Spring Lake Road; Lauren Arcomano, of 223 Pitcher Lane; Daniel J. Rinaldi, of 8 Southview Lane; and Kate Kortbus, of 10 Sunrise Drive.

Poll watchers will be available to assist anyone who needs instructions on how to cast a write-in ballot.

The budget represents a 3 percent increase in appropriations from the 2017-2018 budget, and includes a proposed tax levy that stays within the district's maximum allowable cap of 2.24 percent.

In Sagaponack, voting continues until 8:30 p.m.

Schools that are proposing budgets that exceed the tax cap are required by law to have the approval of 60% of their district voters.

However, during the meeting, Musto reiterated his statement from the work session that the 1.5 percent increase, which would raise the millage rate to 13.6338, would "satisfy the financial obligations the district has at this time".

ONEIDA - The annual budget vote on the proposed 2018-2019 Oneida City School District Budget will be held on Tuesday noon to 9 p.m.at Oneida High School or Durhamville Elementary School. "So in a sense, for the next ten years we could do $100 million of fix and maintenance to our school buildings and not have to borrow". It passed by a 7-2 vote Monday, with a final vote expected next month. The board would consist of three members of the School Board, two members of the City Council and the Mayor. The proposed overall budget is $12,232,212.

Incumbent Christopher Hudson will have a free run while seeking his second three-year term on the board, as he is running unopposed. Incumbent Halsey Stevens is seeking a third five-year term.

Wainscott's $3.3 million budget can be voted on at the school from 2 to 8 p.m.
