Roslyn school district

VOTING

7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Roslyn High School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $105,097,968 budget for 2016-17, a 1.20 percent increase from the current $103,851,841. The tax levy would increase by 0.31 percent, from $91,161,495 to $91,448,050.

The increase falls below the state’s tax-cap limit of 0.60 percent, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget. School taxes on the average single-family home would rise by 0.31 percent, from $13,861 to $13,904.

The proposed budget would add 10.3 full-time teachers and staff positions to the district, including 2.9 full-time teachers for science, math and art-related classes, and four special education teaching assistants.

Residents also will vote on two propositions. One seeks authorization for the lease purchase of four school buses and four vans to replace older vehicles in the district’s fleet. Another proposition would extend the property lease for the school bus parking and administration site from 10 years to 20 years. The propositions would not affect taxes, according to the district.
