Residents to vote on $91 million spending plan for 2013-14
At its meeting on April 9, the Guilderland Board of Education unanimously adopted a $91,023,200 budget for the 2013-14 school year by a vote of 9-0. The budget, which represents an increase in spending of $1,763,340 (+1.98 percent) over the current year, would result in a 3.39 percent tax levy increase in the coming year--under the district's maximum allowable tax levy limit as calculated under the state's "tax cap" guidelines. Tax rates are also estimated to increase by the same amount. The plan will now go before district residents for a public vote on May 21, 2013. Get complete details about the 2013-14 budget

What's new on Channel 16?
Residents in the Town of Guilderland may have recently noticed that Channel 16, operated out of the Guilderland High School Media Department, has undergone a bit of an overhaul. While the programming on the station may look a bit different, you can still find all of the important school information that the community has come to expect. However, the programming schedule will change slightly to accommodate new titles. Viewers may also notice that the music track is no longer WMHT; instead, the music is now courtesy of students in the GCSD music department. In addition, the station is now featuring artwork and photography by students, as well. If you haven't seen it already, we invite you to take a look at the new Channel 16...enjoy!
