A rising number of special-education students will be a factor in Alexander Central School's 1998-99 proposed budget, which Superintendent John Lutz expects to present Wednesday to the Board of Education.
"Alexander's 10.5 percent of special-education students falls below the state average," he said. "Our special-education students are taught in regular classes here, with teachers and aides alternating with them. Alexander also rents three classrooms for special-education students in the Genesee Valley area."
Last week, district voters approved spending $120,000 to buy two 66-passenger diesel buses. State aid will reduce the local cost to $24,000.
