CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Taxpayers in Clarence have less than a week to decide whether they will approve a new school budget proposal. The re-vote is next Tuesday. Wednesday morning, a new coalition of Clarence School groups came together to show their support for the plan.
Around half of the extracurricular clubs at the high school and middle school would be cut. Nearly 54 positions in the district would be lost, 33 of those being teaching and administrative jobs.
Clarence citizen and parent Drew Cerza said, "All the groups realize that they're really fighting for the same cause. That's the kids and a quality education of keeping Clarence number one in Western New York as a district. And it's about getting the yes vote."
The proposal is also asking voters to approve a 3.62 percent tax increase, which is slightly under the tax cap. The budget that was turned down would have raised taxes almost 10 percent.
