Oysterponds school district

VOTING

2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Oysterponds Elementary School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $5,680,052 budget for 2016-17, a 1.08 percent increase from the current $5,619,393. The tax levy would increase by 1.37 percent, from $5,044,905 to $5,114,056.

This increase is equal to the district’s tax-cap limit, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on the average single-family home would rise by 1.37 percent, from $2,240.40 to $2,271.11.

The proposed school budget would include a 1.25 percent salary increase and a 3.3 percent step increase for teachers. It would add one teacher and a full-day prekindergarten program for 4-year-olds and a half-day program for 3-year-olds.
