Central Islip school district

VOTING

9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Early Childhood Center, also known as Alfano Elementary School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $210,833,025 budget for 2018-19, a 3.54 percent increase from the current $203,623,675. The tax levy would increase 1.69 percent, from $90,494,353 to $92,025,934.

This increase is within the district’s tax-cap limit of 3.09 percent, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on an average single-family home would rise 1.88 percent, from $8,579.60 to $8,740.98.

The proposed budget calls for teachers to get a step increase of 1.8 percent.
