Hampton Bays school budget includes 18.5 percent tax hike

Hire a Business Administrator from the corporate world = CHECK
Having the BOE approve a minimal increase in spending 2.8%=CHECK
Being the largest employer in the Hampton Bays community of highly qualified staff = CHECK
Increasing the graduation rate to 90% = CHECK
Having Moodys increase bond rating due to fiscal responsibility = CHECK

Attending a board meeting and becoming informed = PRICE
Protection of property value because of a good school district = PRICELESS" Apr 23, 10 4:11 PM

I CARE so I AM VOTING YES. It is my property values that need protection and our kids who need a good education. For .83 cents a day it is well worth it! " Apr 23, 10 4:15 PM

You are right...it is a tough economy. But look at other school districts. Some are laying off 150 teachers. Others are laying off 400 teachers!! We are fortunate to be in a district where they were fiscally responsible enough to keep us together in an economy when other districts are sliding backward (and it will take them years to recover from this if they ever do!) Regardless of the spin that the SH Press put on this story...we are talking about 82 cents a day to keep our school stong. Stop being ignorant and buying into the media spin." Apr 24, 10 10:28 AM

You seem to forget that the school IS the locals! More than 50% of the people who work inthe school live here and raise their families here! " Apr 24, 10 10:31 AM
