Keyboarding class will return to second and third grades in the Lancaster Central School District if the $107.5 million proposed budget is passed May 15, said Superintendent Michael J. Vallely.
Vallely made the comments during the annual budget hearing, held in the high school auditorium Monday.
The budget represents a 3.5 percent increase over the previous budget of $103.9 million.
The $79.2 million program budget would maintain all current programming and add a school psychologist and four elementary school teachers in response to increasing enrollment at the entry level, said Jamie Phillips, assistant superintendent for business and support services, who announced her retirement at the end of the school year.
Prior to the hearing, three candidates for two seats on the Board of Education participated in a question-and-answer session.
Jill Simme Fecher, Shannon Cohen and incumbent Brenda Christopher answered questions submitted by audience members.
