The public will have a chance Tuesday night to give their thoughts on the Ithaca City School Districtâ€™s school budget for next year.
The $113.7 million spending plan includes reductions in teaching and administration positions, and raises the tax rate by more than 5.5%.
The average home valued at $100,000 in the district would see a tax increase of more than $68 next school year.
District residents will vote on the budget May 20th.
Because the tax increase goes over the stateâ€™s property tax cap, 60 percent or more of voters will need to approve it.
The meeting begins at 6pm at the administration building on Lake Street in Ithaca.
