School district spending and tax plans - 2016

Long Island school districts plan to spend $12.1 billion in the 2016-17 school year, according to figures released by the state Education Department. Here are the details, along with the proposed tax levy and enrollment for most Long Island districts. New Suffolk, Sagaponack and Wainscott were not included in the state announcement. The tax cap limit figure is taken from budget information forms returned to Newsday by school districts. For districts that did not return a form, the figure, marked with a double asterisk, is calculated using data from the state Comptroller's Office.
