Preston School District conducting supplemental election Tuesday

Patrons of the Preston School District are encouraged to go to the polls and vote Tuesday for or against a $250,000 supplemental election. School Superintendent Barbara Taylor says approval would help the district in its efforts to overcome a State Legislative reduction of more than $1 million. Taylor says another potential budget cut is expected in August. To help reduce the financial squeeze, the school board has already changed the kindergarten schedule to all day every other day to a half day option with no mid-day transportation. A principal position vacated by retirement will not be replaced and numerous other actions are being considered. Tuesday’s election will be conducted from 12 noon until 8 p.m. at the Oakwood School. Officials say the impact on a $100,000 taxable value is less than $60 per year or approximately $5 a month.
