DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- School budgets and board of education seats are on the ballot Tuesday in Dutchess.

Residents will be voting on public school budgets for the 2016-2017 school year, along with open seats on school boards.

School districts must keep their budgets within a tax cap on the tax levy, around two percent. Districts wishing to override the cap must have their budgets approved by more than 60 percent.

The Webatuck School District in Amenia is the only Dutchess district attempting to override the tax cap. Webatuck's budget carries a 1.51 percent spending increase and a 1.98 percent tax levy increase.

Pawling is the only school decreasing spending in 2016-2017. Its budget will decrease spending by .84 percent and reduce the tax levy by 1.91 percent.
