Board of Education Meeting February 11, 2016 from Haddonfield Civic Association on Vimeo.

On February 11, the BOE formally accepted the offer from the State for debt service aid of up to 40% of the cost of the work in the March 8th referendum. It was explained that although the State offers up to 40% the BOE is using a more conservative estimate of 34% in its presentations to the public as the actual appropriation varies from year to year. The actual wording of the referendum as an accurate descriptor of the already approved project packages was also passed. Lastly the BOE confirmed the locations and timing (7AM-9PM) of the polling places for March 8th. WARNING: If you usually vote at Crows Woods or Borough Hall your polling place is different. Read your sample ballot when it comes in the mail.

The new board swore in new members Joshua Drew and Adam Sangillo and welcomed back Susan Kutner for a full 3 year term. In the reorganization meeting the board reappointed professional relationships, reaffirmed district goals and readopted existing policies. After discussion and public input the board voted 7-1 (Ms. Kutner works for the State BOE and cannot vote on this matter) to continue towards a March 8th referendum. As the board refines the referendum paperwork the latest total amount is now just shy of 36 Million and about $300/per year (avg household) over a 25 year bond. Next meeting is Jan 27th when the total and per house costs may be finalized.
