Are You Pleased With Your District's Proposed 2013-'14 Budget?

With school budget votes upcoming, how will you be voting in your district?

With the 2012-'13 school year winding down and proposed budgets for the upcoming year adopted or ready to be adopted, district members can begin looking ahead to vote on May 21.

Mount Sinai and Rocky Point are set to adopt their budgets soon while Miller Place and Shoreham already have theirs set. As of now it looks as though no local districts will attempt to exceed the tax levy cap, something Mt. Sinai had issues with last year after their first cap-busting budget failed to pass with the necessary 60-percent approval.

Miller Place had its discussions about full-day kindergarten before ultimately deciding to opt against, and each district looks to have avoided cuts to programs and faculty.

With most of the necessary information out there, how do you feel about your districts budget in the upcoming vote? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

MP - No! Next year, No!, The year after, No! Not until things change, and we get better value for our hard-earned $. I have 2 in the district now, and 2 that have graduated. The decline in value is so obvious, it is amazing; yet, we keep throwing more money at a bad situation, and the same knuckleheads perpetuate their own existences. Truly disgusting.

MS- enough is enough. You clowns need to take a cut. You also need to have the sports programs a pay as you go by the parents.

I wouldn't have a problem voting 'yes', if MP would get rid of a couple of Superintendents!! Have you seen their SALARIES and BENEFIT PACKAGE COSTS?? WOW! Why do we need 3 for only 4 schools, 3 of which are on the SAME property??? and then they take programs away from our kids because 'they' can't afford them?? wth?? I just don't get it.

You people better start learning how to vote no. It's starting to come back and bite you in the a__. Not to mention you home values go down everytime the tax goes up. So think about it, your giving twice and maybe more with each raise in taxes.
