Over 100 school districts went to the polls Tuesday for budget and board votes, with some failing to come to an agreement.
Proposed increases would see taxes go up an average of 1.3%, the lowest in five years.
School officials said they were seeking small tax increases despite federal aid help because that payment is a one-time thing, and it isn't clear how things such as new full-time hires will be calculated into future budgets.
At least four budgets failed to pass -- Wantagh, Three Village, Bridgehampton and Northport-East Northport.
All but Northport were trying to pierce the tax cap.
