I would like to provide information about the important March 11th voter referendum to address our critical facility needs in the Middletown Township Public Schools. I would like to invite you to attend one of the next two public forums scheduled to present information to the community. The first is tonight, February 25th, at 8 PM at the Board of Education meeting located at HS North and the second on March 6th at 7 PM at Bayshore Middle School.
Our Board of Education approved a voter referendum to issue $19.3 million in bonds to address critical facility needs. The remainder of the $32.2 million cost of these projects will be funded by $12.9 million in state grants. Voting on the referendum will take place from 4 - 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. The referendum must be approved by voters in order for the district to obtain its share of the 40% state funding of these projects.
On our district website, there is a page dedicated to the Referendum, http://www.middletownk12.org/referendum2014 The page includes a video of the recent public presentation on February 19th at Thompson Middle School, the presentation by Spiezle Architectural Group, Inc. and Wilentz, Goldman and Spitzer P.A. at the January 27th and 28th board meetings, important facts concerning the funding and facility needs, an interview by one of our high school students, and questions and answers on the referendum.
