Mineola school district

VOTING

6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Jackson Avenue and Meadow Drive schools.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $98,195,200 budget for 2018-19, a 3.97 percent increase from the current $94,444,259. The tax levy would increase 1.96 percent, from $79,441,368 to $80,998,420.

This increase is within the district’s tax-cap limit of 2.12 percent, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on the average single-family house would increase 1.77 percent, from $6,709 to $6,828.

The proposed budget funds a 1 percent contractual salary increase and a 1.5 percent step increase for teachers.

Courses would be added in Advanced Placement human geography and computer science principles and in AP Capstone Research.
