Spending / Pass (2,148 to 1,258)

$122,648,900.09 a 1.907% increase from the current $120,354,027.60.

Tax levy

3.871% increase, from $89,092,027.63 to $92,540,950.53. This is within the district’s 5.631% tax-cap limit, so a simple majority vote is required for approval.

Teacher pay, jobs

The proposed budget calls for increases in teacher salaries based on existing contracts but did not provide specifics because the percent increases will vary based on step and grade, and are very employee-specific. The proposed spending calls for a reduction of nine teachers and five aides/monitors, most accomplished through retirement without replacement. District officials said the reductions would not have an impact on current programs or classes.

Candidates

The terms are one and three years. Vote for 3, elected at-large

Incumbents Lisa Colacioppo, Maria Mosca and James Svendsen are running unopposed. The third-highest vote-getter will receive a one-year term created by the resignation of board member Marianne M. Russo.
