A full 100 percent of districts' spending plans in Nassau and Suffolk counties - 124 budgets in all - passed in the initial round of balloting at this time a year ago, meaning that no revotes were needed in June.

Of those, about 48% of the districts have proposed raising taxes by ever dollar they can without breaking the tax cap, according to date from the State Education Department.

Voters in the East Greenbush Central School District will head to the polls from 7 a.m.to 9 p.m.to vote on a proposed budget, which maintains all current programs and services, totals $94.3 million, an increase of 2.29% from a year ago.

The district is also asking voters to cast ballots approving its proposed $93.5 million operating budget for the 2018-19 school year, which would slash approximately 70 full-time staff positions in an attempt to close a $4.7 million gap between expenditures and revenues.

The Martinez Unified School District Board of Education will meet at 5 p.m. Monday in a closed session to consider labor matters and whether to expel certain students.
