SEAFORD - Parents came out in droves to a school board meeting at Seaford Manor School after the district?s budget plan failed at the polls last week.

The original budget contained a 9-percent increase on property taxes.

Parents who came out generally said they wanted to show their support for their children's education and hope that officials will go back to the drawing board to come up with another budget.

Parents also expressed their frustration with Albany for reducing the amount of funding to the district, thus forcing the district to propose the now-failed budget.
