Public school budgets will rise an average 1.69 percent and tax collections an average of 1.71 percent next year, according to proposals released April 30, 2015, by the State Education Department.

Residents of school districts in Riverhead, Tuckahoe Common, Southampton, Bridgehampton and Westhampton Beach will see the biggest rise in school tax rates with the current proposals, while Roosevelt, Fishers Island, Amagansett, Freeport and Wantagh could see a small decrease in school taxes.

Check out the database for all of Long Island's school districts, except for the small districts of New Suffolk and Wainscott.

Look up each district's proposed budget for next year, the projected tax rate increase or decrease from last year, as well as the projected enrollment for each district.

You can also see on our interactive map which districts will be boosting the taxes the most to fund the budget, and which ones will see a decrease or no increase at all.
