In Glen Cove students were in the middle if an average school day. But what they don't know is that the budget vote is looming and if it doesn't pass it could impact major things like classroom size and extracurricular activities.
The tough part is getting that message to taxpayers.
To make matters worse district officials estimate losing generally $900,000 in state aide.
Glen Cove's budget is $72 million up $2 million from last year.
District officials have already laid off 10 teachers and another 18 positions will be eliminated if the budget doesn't pass.
Teachers refused to take a pay freeze and that doesn't sit well with taxpayers
In Port Washington parents are a bit more optimistic. Teachers agreed to take a zero percent increase for the first year of their contract. But there are no guarantees.
