On April 20, component school districts’ boards of education unanimously approved Questar III’s proposed $6.7 million administrative budget for the 2021-22 school year, which is unchanged from the current year’s budget.
This is the only portion of the BOCES budget that component school districts vote on each year. Component boards of education are required to vote on the same day. Budgets for programs and services are dependent on purchases from school districts on a yearly basis.
Component school boards also voted to fill three BOCES Board of Education positions. Questar III BOCES Board Members Mark Mann (East Greenbush), Mary Marro-Giroux (Troy) and Frank Zwack (Berlin) were reelected to three-year terms starting July 1.
