Another Indian River School District Referendum in February

Jan 30, 2020


Indian River School District voters are headed for another referendum

The date is February 13th.

Superintendent Mark Steels says it is looking to build a new facility for Sussex Central High School.

The original facility was designed for 15-hundred students but now accommodates 18-hundred.

Meanwhile, Millsboro Middle students would shift to the current high school while their current facility would become the new elementary school.

WBOC reports that Steele says the district would fun 40 percent of the $58-million needed for the project.

However, property owners have turned down two previous referendums school funding.
