The Oysterponds School District is proposing a spending increase of $24,373 — or .43 percent — in its 2017-18 school budget.

The district plans to raise the tax levy by .48 percent to stay under the tax cap. That translates to an increase of 18 cents per $100 of assessed value. An average home assessed at $6,000 would have an estimated increase of $10.82, according to a district budget brochure.

Oysterponds Elementary School

While Southold Town was established more than 350 years ago, one of its public school districts is just now celebrating its 50th birthday this summer. The Oysterponds School District was created in 1966 after the North Fork’s easternmost hamlets, Orient and East Marion, merged their school systems, which were each nearly 90 years old at the time.
