Bethpage school district


7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Bethpage High School gymnasium.


The district proposes a $81,203,591 budget for 2015-16, a 1 percent increase from the current $80,364,954. The local tax levy would remain at $63,593,057.

There is no change in the tax levy, which would have been capped at 0.13 percent, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget. District officials did not provide school taxes for the average single-family home due to lack of data from the county. The proposed budget will add two ELL teachers as per a new unfunded mandate and add art and music programs.
