Rockville Centre school district

VOTING

7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at South Side High School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $109,482,695 school budget for 2016-17, a 2.25 percent increase from the current $107,078,660. The tax levy would rise 0.84 percent, from $91,046,456 to $91,815,000.

This increase is within the district’s tax-cap limit of 0.84 percent, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget.

The dollar amount of school taxes paid on the average single-family house would rise by 0.81 percent, from $11,977 to $12,074.

The district currently is in contract negotiations with its teachers. Current programs and staffing levels would be maintained in the proposed budget.
