By a vote of 495-308, Shaker Regional School District decided to keep its Senate Bill 2 rules for town meeting.

The petitioned warrant article was the only one to fail on voting day for the district. Canterbury and Belmont voters passed a $22.48 million operating budget; a collective bargaining agreement that increases salaries and benefits for staff $226,256 in 2017-18, $356,313 in 2018-19 and $359,483 in 2019-20; and several appropriations for expendable trust funds.

An article agreeing to coordinate elections with the towns of Canterbury and Belmont was also approved.

In the race for three school board seats, Jennifer Sottak and Eric Johnson (both from Belmont) and Robert Reed (from Canterbury) came out on top.
