Fishers Island school district


2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Fishers Island School.


The district proposes a $3,705,582 budget for 2018-19, a 1.48 percent increase from the current $3,651,419. The tax levy would increase 1.97 percent, from $3,251,363 to $3,315,370.

This increase is within the district’s tax-cap limit of 2 percent, so a simple majority is required to approve the budget.

The district said it did not have the assessment information necessary to provide an estimate of school taxes on an average single-family home.

The proposed budget includes a 4.6 percent step increase for teachers. No cuts to programs or staff are expected.
