The Oysterponds Board of Education will hold its monthly meeting tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Orient tonight.
The board is expected to vote on Superintendent Joan Frisicano’s proposed $5.4 million budget. The spending plan carries an estimated 2.5 percent increase to the tax levy. That would raise $121,616 above this year’s figure.
The district is allowed to exceed the state’s newly mandated 2 percent cap because certain expenses, such as employee health insurance and pensions, are exempt from the law.
The school’s librarian, as well as a special education teacher and teacher assistant will be laid off next year if the tentative budget is approved. Earlier this month, Ms. Frisicano said during a budget workshop that she was able to add the school’s special education director back into her proposed spending plan.
