Residents of Rockland County school districts can vote on proposed school budgets and capital projects on Tuesday.

Nearly half the districts have spending plans that approach the state-imposed tax cap.

These school districts have special "capital spending" bond requests:

  • Clarkstown Schools seek to establish a capital reserve fund up to $10 million.
  • East Ramapo seeks a 2.7 percent increase.
  • North Rockland seeks a 3 percent increase.
  • Nyack Schools are asking voters for permission to spend up to $2 million from capital reserves for security upgrades.
  • Pearl River seeks a 3.3 percent increase.
  • South Orangetown Schools seek to renew a lease for two buildings for up to 50 years with Dominican College.
  • Suffern Schools want to use up to $1.6 million from an existing capital reserve fund to add security vestibules at Connor Elementary, Viola Elementary and Suffern High School as well as improvements at Suffern Middle School.
