After passing a current expense referendum in March of 2017, the Indian River School District told voters they would be coming back for more funding.  The district has now set the date for a Major Capital Improvement Referendum.  Superintendent Mark Steele confirmed the date of Tuesday, February 5th during last week’s school board meeting.

The plan is for a new Sussex Central High School, additional classrooms at Indian River High School and Selbyville Middle School.  The state will pay 60% – the taxpayers part will be covered by a 35 cent increase per $100 of assessed property value – about $91 extra annually the school tax portion of your county property tax bill.  In case of weather on February 5, the referendum would be held on February 19th.
