VOTING

7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Lincoln Orens Middle School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $39,312,704 budget for 2017-18, a 1.36 percent increase from the current $38,784,548. The tax levy would rise by 1.48 percent, from $31,050,117 to $31,508,198. This increase is within the district’s tax-cap limit of 2.95 percent, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget. The district did not provide the estimated increase of school taxes for the average single-family house because final assessment data was not available from Nassau County.

The proposed budget includes estimated increases in teacher salaries subject to negotiations. All programs will be maintained at current levels. A new assistant superintendent position would be added.

THE CANDIDATES

Raymond Miley is running for one at-large seat. The term is five years.
