The Board of Education is holding a Referendum on Sept. 27, to ask voters in Millburn Township to authorize the district to raise funds through the sale of bonds.
School leaders have suggested to finance the purchase and renovation of the former Millburn Regional Day School (MRDS) building to become a fifth grade school to be known again as Washington School; provide innovation, research and design spaces at all schools to be competitive with comparable school districts which would include the renovation of media centers at the elementary schools, as well as additions and renovations at the middle and high school; and provide Health and Safety improvements at all schools.
The state has determined that it will provide debt service aid in the amount of $7,618,199 on the proposed referendum projects. That brings the net cost of the proposed referendum to $17,974,977 from the total cost of $25,593,176, according to the township school website.
