Salem high school project is district's hottest topic
The deliberative session begins at 7 p.m. in the Seifert Auditorium at Salem High School.
The proposed operating budget for the 2014-15 school year is $59,427,290.
The five union contracts under consideration include a two-year contract for the teachers' union that sees no increase in salary for the first year and a 1 percent increase in the second year.
The big item on the warrant looks to be the proposed high school renovation project.
The school district is asking voters to bond just under $75 million for an extensive renovation project to Salem High School.
About $11 million for the renovation of the high school's Career and Technical Education Center will be paid for with state funds. The remainder of the project will be funded through a series of bonds.
At the height of the bond issues, there will be a little over a $300 per year on the average homeowners property tax rate, according to Superintendent Michael Delahanty.
Any citizens with questions about the deliberative session are encouraged to call the superintendent's office at 893-7040.
