With Mt. Sinai's original, , the Board of Education and Administration went back to the drawing board and has with a tax levy at the cap of 2.13 percent.
The district had a few options in order to make the necessary adjustments to get the lev from the original 4.76 increase down to cap level. Cuts in the revised budget include five high school athletic teams and some "under-subscribed" clubs. The district will now also charge fees for field and facility use, and decided not to use any additional money from the fund balance as they already dipped into the balance to retain what they have.
Do you think the district made the right decisions and proposed a sound budget? Do you think they should have made cuts in different areas or even additional cuts to go below the levy? Tell us in the comments below.
