VOTING

6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Bay Shore High School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $149,899,163 budget for 2016-17, a 2.05 percent increase from the current $146,888,194. The tax levy would rise by 0.66 percent, from $101,905,851 to $102,576,506.

This increase is equal to the district’s tax-cap limit, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on the average single-family home would increase by 0.66 percent, from $7,550 to $7,600.

The proposed budget provides for a 1.3 percent contract increase for teachers as well as varying step increases, if applicable, district officials said. It calls for adding 2.5 math teachers for increasing instructional time in grades 7-10 and adding five special-education teachers for students returning from out-of-district placements, according to district officials.
