GUILDERLAND — Incumbents Barbara Fraterrigo and Gloria Towle-Hilt are running again for the Guilderland School Board. They are joined by newcomer Teresa Gitto.

All class sizes in kindergarten through fifth grade were capped at 27 students.

Administrators hope to find a way to have five regular class sections rather than four for a class of 102, after parents requested the section for a third year, according to Voorheesville Superintendent Brian Hunt.

Small class sizes affect Voorheesville's entire high school athletic program, according to Athletic Director Joseph Sapienza, as Voorheesville looks to join other districts to fill teams.

The Voorheesville Elementary School now has 46 students, or nearly 10 percent of enrollment, who are eligible for free or reduced-cost lunches.​

“To reach 100,000 feet with our balloon is our ultimate goal,” said former high school senior Alexandra Cunningham last March when Project Icarus was just getting underway.
