Nearly all New York school districts that put budgets up for new votes after first-round defeats have won approval from voters.
The New York State School Boards Association says 28 budgets passed in Tuesday's voting, two failed and the numbers were too close to call in one district. State law gives districts two chances to get budgets passed. If they fail both times, they cannot raise taxes at all in the next school year. Wilson in Niagara County and Remsen in Oneida County now face that challenge. The count was too close to call Wednesday in the Mount Vernon district in Westchester County.
