WOODBURY - Newsday's senior education reporter John Hildebrand sat down with News 12 today to discuss the proposed hikes to school property taxes.

Long Island's school districts recently released their proposed tax levies for the upcoming school year. Seven districts will ask voters to pierce the state's property tax increase cap.

They'll need to get 60 percent of district voters to approve that sort of increase.

Sachem Central School District is asking for the biggest hike of all the districts. It wants voters to approve a 7.49 percent tax levy increase.
