May 2. from 1 to 5 p m •t Salem Central School District will hold its Budget Hearing in conjunction with the upcoming budget vote sched­ uled on Tuesday, May 18, on Wednesday, May 5. Local attorney and former school board member, James Tomasi, will chair the program as he has done for several years. The purpose of the Budget hearing is to present the proposed budget for the 1999-00 school year and to answer any questions from community members. The format for the program will be as follows; 1 ) the introduction of the candidate running for the Board of Edu­ cation for a five year term; 2 ) review of the proposed budget; and 3) presenta­ tion of the propositions included on the ballot. According to School Superintendent Gregory Aidala, Section 1718 in Education Law requires the Board of Education to adopt an annual school budget. A budget serves many essential functions. It compels the Board of Education to examine the educational program and adopt priorities. The spending plan also indicates to district residents what it will cost to offer a par­ ticular type of educational program. Additionally, the budget plan gives an overview of the upcoming year's pro­ gram. From the financial standpoint, a budget tells where the money is coming from (revenue) and determines the pro­ jected tax levy. Finally, the budget adoption process serves as a public in­ formation system by outlining expendi­ tures for the taxpayers to review. The proposed spending plan for the 1999-00 school year totals $8,340,697. The budget plan, if approved by the voters, is expected to translate into an average tax increase of 3.49%. The 1999-00 budget is highlighted by the following: a) new debt service pay­ ments for the $4.2 million building ex­ pansion project; b) additional teaching positions in mathematics and reading to support increased graduation require­ ments; c) introduction of a one week summer program in grades 4, 5, 6 , 7, and 9; d) increased staffing in physical education and speech/language devel­ opment; and e) -the addition of a new full time computer technician to oversee the district's technology in­ vestment. A summary of the 1999-00 school budget was mailed recently to all households in the community in the form of the May 1999 district news­ letter. A more detailed 40 page packet along with the annual School Report Card information for Salem elementary School and Salem High School will soon be available upon request from the Business Office or any of the school offices, Monday through Friday. Also included on the ballot for the May 18 budget vote will be a proposition to purchase one replace­ ment 30 passenger school bus with an automatic wheel chair lift. If approved by the voters, the new vehicle will be ordered in February 2000 and paid for as part of the 2000-01 budget. Proposition #3 on the ballot is to elect a member to the Board of Educa­ tion for a five year term. Incumbent Jim Sheldon is seeking re-election and is running unopposed for a second term of office. Mr. Sheldon is a resident of the town of Salem and is a managing partner of Woody Hill Farm. Community residents are reminded that the date of the budget vote is Tues­ day, May 18. Under a revised format which was initiated last year, the polls will open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. in the main lobby of the school. Absentee ballot applications are available from the Business Office, Monday through Friday. With the date of the budget vote rapidly approaching, residents planning to vote by absentee ballot should con­ tact the District Clerk, Linda Gilligan, as soon as possible to complete the necessary paperwork. To be eligible to vote, individuals must meet the following criteria: a) a resident of the Salem Central School District for at least 30 days prior to the vote; b) at least 18 years old; and c) a citizen of the United States. No prereg­ istration is required. Locals -The next card party will be held at the Grange Hall on Saturday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. -Rev.

The activity provides the children with a lot of good exercise and helps develop their balance. Pictured are students Amanda Niel, Kamber Jilek, Jon Kreig, and John Saunders. Tree expert visits forestry class Salem Central School's Forest Man­ agement class had a visit from Tama­ rack Forestry, Inc. on Tuesday, April 6 . The company is headquartered in the northern Adirondacks. Jim McGee, of Tamarack, was willing to make the visit to foster a relationship with the students and agricultural staff at Salem Central School. The Forest Management class is currently fine tuning their arboricul- tural, or urban tree care, skills. Accord­ ing to Jim McGee, \Well trained arborists are few and far between, so when young people are interested and already being trained; Tamarack cannot resist supporting them.\ The most challenging skill that the Salem students are being taught is tech­ nical tree climbing with ropes and sad­ dles. The Tamarack Forestry visitation kicked off the climbing unit. 1 'ree climbing demonstrations, a safety dis­ cussion and employment opportunities started the day off. Salem Central invested in two climbing saddles and ropes through Tamarack and the Binghamton based Buckingham Saddles. Consequently these two companies donated a saddle and rope for each one set Salem pur­ chased. This translated to six sets for the price of two. \If a student chooses to apply his or herself now, and learns these skills, they can realistically write their own ticket to gainful employment before graduation.\ says Doug Paul, the Forest Management teacher at Salem. Students will be fine tuning their skills and knowledge in the weeks to come.
