Spending 

$603,274,281, a 7.5% increase from the current $561,203,261.

Tax levy

2.5% increase, from $111,568,807 to $114,358,027. This is within the district’s 3.84% tax-cap limit, so a simple majority vote is required for approval. 

Teacher pay, jobs

The proposed budget includes a 2.95% contractual increase for teachers. The district is adding instrumental music for 6th grade, and a behavior specialist and secondary teachers as needed for additional elective offerings.

Propositions

A proposition seeks approval to spend $1.4 million to purchase land and a building. If approved, the proposition would not affect the tax levy.

Candidates

The terms are three years. Vote for 3, elected by seat. Julia Burgos (incumbent) is facing Kimberly Johnson. Cynthia Cifferi (incumbent) faces Zed Key. Eileen Felix (incumbent) is running unopposed.
