Rockville Centre school district

VOTING

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

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $117,152,642 school budget for 2018-19, a 3.97 percent increase from the current $112,682,073. The local tax levy would increase 2.98 percent, from $92,500,000 to $95,252,568.

The increase is within the district’s tax cap limit of 3.03 percent, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget. The dollar amount of school taxes paid on the average single-family house would increase 2.82 percent, from $12,325 to $12,672.

The proposed budget includes a 1 percent salary increase for teachers and varied step increases. Four teacher aide and four permanent substitute positions would be cut.
