All but one school district on Long Island approved area school budget and bond proposals.
In total, 123 school districts saw their budgets passed, though voters in Wyandanch rejected a proposed $77.8 million that represented a 40.93 percent tax increase by a 149-332 tally. A proposition to limit the number of students eligible for bus rides also failed 162-310.
Following the rejected budget, the Wyandanch Board of Education has scheduled a 7 p.m. meeting on Wednesday, May 22, where they will discuss their options moving forward.
When a proposed school budget is defeated at the polls, New York State law gives school boards three options. Board members may decide to put the same budget up for vote a second time, put a revised budget up for vote, or go directly to a contingency budget.
