The public will have a chance Tuesday night to give their thoughts on the Ithaca City School District’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 state’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.
