WOODBURY - Residents in both East Islip and Floral Park got to hear their school districts' revised budget proposals after they shot down the original budgets during voting earlier this month.

In East Islip, the cuts could put teaching positions, arts, sports, foreign language and clubs on the chopping block.

Some parents in attendance said that the district should look at cutting salaries for some of the top administrative positions instead of cutting programs.

In Floral Park, officials outlined a revised budget that includes a 4 percent tax increase.

Voters in East Islip and Floral Park, as well as all the seven other districts on Long Island that failed to pass their original school budgets, will head the polls for a re-vote on June 19.

90 percent of LI school budgets pass
