The Shoreham-Wading River school board plans to adopt Superintendent Steven Cohen’s preliminary $67 million spending plan Tuesday night, according to the meeting’s agenda.

In total, costs are estimated to increase 1.75 percent year-over-year, with a 1.9 percent tax levy increase expected for taxpayers within the district.

Mr. Cohen has said exemptions approved by the state would have allowed the district to propose a tax increase of up to 2.9 percent without having to acquire a supermajority vote from residents, but the board requested he prepare a budget under that amount.
