Seaford School District Funding Referendum March 4th

Seaford School District Seal

The Seaford School District has decided to ask voters to approve a referendum to fund additional increases in general operating expenses.

WBOC reports that the district wants a tax increase of 72 cents for $100 of assessed property value for general expense by July first of this year.

That would go toward things that range from technology and security to textbooks and athletics.

In addition, the referendum would seek approval to sell bonds for capital improvement projects that would be paid over back over a 20 year period.

This would allow for the replacement of a partial roof at Central Elementary School.

The referendum is set to take place on March 4th at the Seaford High School.
