Clarence, NY - Monday night, the Superintendent of Clarence Schools revealed the dozens of high school and middle school clubs that will be cut if voters approve the latest budget proposal and tax increase next week.
At a public hearing on the budget, Superintendent Geoffrey Hicks said that clubs ranging from the Stage Band at the high school, to the Show Choir and Art Club at the middle school, will go if the budget passes on the re-vote.
Cutting the clubs would save the district $122,000 next year by cutting advisors' stipends.
The school board is asking voters to approve a 3.62-percent tax increase after a nearly ten-percent tax increase proposal failed last month.
Community members voiced concerns about the clubs possibly getting cut at Monday's meeting.
"Does this mean there will be no fall play for the high school?" asked one concerned community member.
