5/17/16 – East Ramapo School Budget Passes

According to East Ramapo Underground, the ERCSD budget vote passed on May 17 because the bloc vote let it pass. On the cards passed out at polling stations, there was no instruction to vote Yes or No on the budget. What generally happens with members of the bloc is, when not instructed, they do nothing.  Despite signs posted in the area by New Square and Kaiser telling people to Vote No on the budget, there were 3,850 people who didn’t vote either way, so the budget was passed by 929 votes.  At the school board meeting, a group of students came out to voice their displeasure with the District and conditions within the East Ramapo and Spring Valley high schools.
