STEUBEN COUNTY, N.Y. --Tuesday night was the final chance for people in the Corning-Painted Post School District to make their voices heard about the 2012-2013 budget.
The final total comes in at $87.6 million and includes a tax levy of 1.78 percent. The spending plan also calls for 105 job cuts, but that number is down from 250 after a $5 million grant from Corning Inc.
And school officials say while there may be significant cuts to the district, those cuts shouldn't impact an average school day.
"If you're a student in our district, you're not going to notice a lot different, I believe, for the most part. There are subtle changes here and there. Whether it be in athletics to a degree or in terms of a service or two. But for the most part, students really aren't going to see anything any different," Superintendent Mike Ginalski said.
School budgets will be decided by the public on May 15th.
