Voter's Guide: Commack School Budget, Board Election

What you need to know for Tuesday's vote.

Commack School District residents will vote on the district’s $183.22 million proposed budget for the 2014-15 school year on Tuesday.

The proposal calls for a 2.14 percent increase in spending over the current year and carries a 1.96 percent tax levy increase, which is within the state's tax cap.

Five candidates are running for two seats on the Commack Board of Education. Incumbent Mary Jo Masciello faces a challenge from Dan Fusco. George Marine, Catherine Kurten and Janine DiGirolamo are running for the seat being vacated by Peter Wunsch, who is not running for re-election.  

Polls are open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Commack Middle School. For more information on the budget, visit the district's website here

What you offer pbug is purely subjective propaganda that's been spun by a few loud voices that were silenced on Tuesday. Where is your data that education has gone "downhill"? Who put that thought in your head?

It starts with the disappearing or dropping national ratings. It goes on with what I've observed as to how a decent education is aimed mainly at the most compliant / normal students while those who have issues including disabilities are more warehoused then educated. My favorite is when Mr. James made it clear in public to a number of parents that he didn't see any problem with kids with disabilities not learning to read by the time they got to high school - said with a big smile on his face.

pbug56: I find it very hard to believe that Dr. James actually did that. If it did though, I suggest coming to the next Board meeting and speaking about what happened. A fairly serious accusation made under the cloak of internet anonymity.
