Shelter Island school district


Noon to 9 p.m. at Shelter Island School.


The district proposes an $11,714,448 budget for 2018-19, a 3.42 percent increase from the current $11,327,228. The tax levy would increase 2.09 percent, from $10,131,788 to $10,343,159.

The increase is equal to the district’s tax-cap limit of 2.09 percent, so a simple majority would approve the budget.

School taxes on a single-family home with an average price of $850,000 are expected to increase 2.09 percent, from $2,415.87 to $2,466.53.

The proposed budget includes an average 4.41 percent salary increase for teachers, stemming from a 2 percent contractual raise and a half-step increase.
