Spending / Pass (657 to 186)

$80,699,285, a 4.61% increase from the current $77,141,053.

Tax levy

1.62% increase, from $69,558,264 to $70,685,552. This is equal to the district’s 1.62% tax-cap limit, so a simple majority vote is required for approval. 

Teacher pay, jobs

The proposed budget includes actual increases in teacher salaries. The proposed spending calls for seven new hires, including four positions for ICT Model teaching in grades 2-6, and a self-contained classroom in the primary school that needs three positions. The district also plans to reduce one 0.9 teaching position due to declining enrollment and five teaching aides. 

Propositions

Proposition 2/ Pass (635 to 202) uses $1,951,500 to install a traffic signal at the Jr./Sr. High School, and install air conditioning, upgrade electrical and improve ventilation at all buildings.

Proposition 3/ Pass (629 to 193) establishes a capital reserve fund.

If approved, neither proposition would result in a tax increase. 

Candidates

The terms are three years. Vote for 2. Heather Morante Young (incumbent) (555) and Mark Attalienti (484) defeated Scott Kaufman (414).
