Voters in the Indian River School District will be going back to the polls for a third referendum.

It’s scheduled for February 13th.

It is seeking funds to build a new Sussex Central High School.

WBOC reports that it will increase the maximum property tax assess to $63.24 for the average property owner.

Superintendent Mark Steele told the television station that the aim is to relieve overcrowding at the northern end of the district.

Voters turned down two previous referenda.

The district also wants to renovate and change the use of two existing school buildings.
