Carle Place school district

VOTING

6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Carle Place Middle/High School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $48,466,946 budget for 2016-17, which would be a 1.69 percent increase from the current $47,660,182. The tax levy would rise by 0.34 percent, from $41,260,012 to $41,398,350.

This increase is equal to the state’s tax cap, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget. Estimated school taxes on the average single-family home were not able to be calculated because Nassau County has not provided necessary assessment information, according to the district.

The proposed budget funds a contractual increase of 0.5 percent and a 1.35 percent average step increase for teachers, and adds 1.4 full-time teaching positions in special education and one full-time science and technology teacher at the elementary level. It does not include cuts in programs or services.

A proposition asks voters to spend $1.4 million from an existing capital-reserve fund for repairs, including replacement doors at the middle/high school, replacement doors and playground resurfacing at Cherry Lane Elementary School and work on the high school track. The district said the measure would not increase the tax levy.
