Building a School Budget for the Future
Developing the annual school budget proposal is a year-round process that involves the Gloversville Board of Education and district and school leaders. On the third Tuesday of each May, that process culminates when residents go to the polls to vote on a school budget proposal for the following year and to elect Board of Education members.
