SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – A proposed budget was approved by the Schenectady City School District school board Wednesday night.

The school board held a meeting Wednesday night to vote on a proposed budget to close the $1.3 million budget gap. The board had previously considered cutting programs such as athletics, but students, parents and teachers opposed that idea.

The board looked at their options Wednesday which included tax levy increases.

Board members agreed upon a $164,304,428 budget with a 2.75 percent tax increase to preserve athletic programs, music and arts.

Certain cuts will still be made such as losing Friday late bus and eliminating a flex music program.
