In most districts, Vermont voters said "yes" to their school budgets.
Of the 240 communities reporting their Town Meeting Day budget votes to the Vermont School Boards Association, 220 of them passed. Four others were partially approved and 16 were rejected.
"What we saw was that there was not any particular pattern, there was not any particular message that was being sent to the world, of the 16 rejected budgets, they were all over the place," said Steve Dale of the Vermont School Boards Association.
The School Boards Association is still awaiting results from a handful of communities.
Twenty-three Vermont towns will vote on their school budgets later this spring.
