7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Lynbrook High School, Lynbrook North Middle School and Lynbrook South Middle School.


The district proposes an $82,486,886 budget for 2017-18, a 2 percent increase from the current $80,867,382.

The tax levy would rise 1.53 percent, from $64,750,162 to $65,737,442. This increase is equal to the district’s tax-cap limit, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget. School taxes on the average single-family house would increase 1.38 percent, from $9,366 to $9,495.

The proposed budget includes an average salary increase of 1 percent and a 3 percent step increase for teachers. The equivalent of 2.4 teaching positions would be cut — two positions in English and a part-time position in family and consumer science. A high school business teacher position would be restored, and an elementary school chorus and high school orchestra teacher position would be added.

The ballot includes four additional propositions. One authorizes spending $675,000 from the district technology replacement fund to purchase instructional technology devices and to replace the district’s virtual server hardware and storage area network. Another authorizes spending $1,185,000 from the district renovation and improvement of facilities reserve fund for a ceiling and lighting project at Lynbrook High School, renovating tennis and basketball courts at the district’s North Middle School and replacing the boiler at Waverly Park Elementary School. A third would extend the district’s technology replacement capital reserve fund for an additional five years through June 30, 2022, and would increase the amount of the fund from $5 million to $7.5 million. Another proposition grants easements across land at Marion Street Elementary School and Lynbrook High School to the American Water Works Company to link water mains on Abrams Place, Bowler Road, Union Avenue and Spencer Avenue.


Incumbents Alicemarie Bresnihan and Ellen Marcus are running unopposed for two at-large seats. Terms are three years.
