The Southold Board of Education is expected to adopt Superintendent David Gamberg’s proposed $28 million budget at tonight’s 7:30 p.m. meeting.

His spending plan is about a $1 million increase compared to the current school year’s budget.

The school board has also reached a tentative retirement incentive agreement with the Southold Faculty Association not to exceed $580,000, according to tonight’s agenda. Many school districts strapped for cash have offered retirement incentives because replacing employees with new hires is a cost-effective move.
