“I want to offer to my heartfelt thanks to our public for supporting this important initiative,” Superintendent Mark Steele said. “We are grateful that IRSD residents recognized the need for additional classroom space and approved our plan to solve overcrowding problems with the construction of only one new school. The district worked diligently to put forth a proposal that would address enrollment growth while also providing the best value to taxpayers. With the approval of this proposal, we can provide the best possible learning environment to the students of the Indian River School District for years to come. On behalf of our students, staff and Board of Education, I want to thank everyone who supported this referendum. You truly have the best interests of our students at heart.”
