Residents are voting on budgets in suburban and rural school districts across the state Tuesday.
Voters will also decide on school board candidates and propositions in some districts. This is the first year schools are operating under the state's tax cap. Many districts are proposing budgets that include deep cuts because of the two percent cap.
The actual level of the cap varies from district-to-district based on a complicated state formula.
Four local districts are trying to override the cap.
Voters in Holland, Niagara-Wheatfield, Wyoming and Bemus Point must approve those budgets with at least a 60-percent majority in order for the budgets to pass.
In addition to the budget, voters in some districts will also decide on school board candidates and other propositions.
