7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Rocky Point High School.


The district proposes a $83,286,346 budget for 2017-18, a 3.3 percent increase from the current $80,623,643. The tax levy would rise by 3.21 percent, from $48,084,714 to $49,629,259.

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

School taxes on an average single-family home would increase by 3.21 percent, from $7,268.79 to $7,502.28.

The proposed budget includes a 1 percent increase in salaries and a step increase of 2.7 percent for teachers. The budget would add 2.6 teachers and four teaching assistants.

A proposition asks voters for authorization to spend $3,385,965 that has been set aside in the capital reserve fund for things such as high school parking, security cameras, music rooms renovation, middle school sealing and artificial turf.
