Indian River School District residents approved the current expense referendum on Thursday, March 2. The official vote totals were 7,091 votes for and 5,298 votes against.
“We are extremely grateful for the public’s support of this important initiative,” Interim Superintendent Mark Steele said. “In my 36 years as a teacher and administrator in the Indian River School District, I have never been more amazed and overwhelmed by the generosity of our parents and community members. It is that generosity that has allowed us to build a world-class system of public schools and become one the finest school districts in the State of Delaware. On behalf of our students, staff and Board of Education, I would like to thank everyone who supported this referendum. Because of you, the Indian River School District can continue providing students with exemplary instructional programs into the future.”
