Monday Presentation About The Referendum

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Monday night was the last scheduled presentation by Superintendent Rob Haworth on the state of Vigo County schools and the referendum asking for a $7 million property tax increase.

But he’s not done reaching out to the Vigo County community. He plans on having more meetings to talk about the state of the school.

He said that those next meetings will have a duel focus on the operational referendum and the 4 million dollars’ worth but will also cover future building projects.

The operational referendum for the schools on the ballot this November.

Superintendent Haworth says the school also needs new buildings.

He says a capital referendum for that will be on the ballot in May of 2021.

The school board discussed problems of finding teachers for open positions.

They also discussed declining enrollment and approved new textbook rental fees for the upcoming school year.
