Kings Park residents will vote on May 15 whether or not to approve the $80,832,817 budget that was unanimously adopted by the Board of Education.
The 2012-13 budget is a 2.18 percent increase over the current budget with a tax levy increase of 2.49 percent, which superintendent Susan Agruso, said would result in an anticipated tax rate increase of 2.49 percent as well.
Cuts due to the budget include 4.7 teaching positions, and several non-teaching positions including a mechanic, two custodians, five aides, and one maintenance position.
The consolidation of bus routes will result in the loss of four bus drivers, three of who are retiring.
Kings Park residents can, on average expect to see about a $186.17 increase for the year or about $15.51 monthly.
