BOHEMIA - Long Island school districts are struggling to stay under the new, state-mandated 2 percent property tax cap, and most superintendents say cuts are simply unavoidable. In districts across the Island, cuts are coming from every direction. Some schools are closing buildings and eliminating sports programs, while others are laying off teachers and staff members to save money.It's good news for most taxpayers, who are seeing some of the lowest proposed tax hikes in years, but it comes at a high cost for many local schools - and students. Most Long Island school districts came up with budgets that stay under the cap this year, but for many, it meant dipping into rainy day funds. District officials say the question becomes how long those reserve funds will last, and what will happen when they run out.News 12 LI series: What's UP With School Taxes?
