For the first time in six years, Gibraltar School District will ask its voters to make decisions on funding its operations and facility upgrades. The building referendum would ask for $4.4 million to remodel the library/media center, classrooms, and other improvements. The operational referendum asks to override current revenue limits by $1.4 million next school year, $2.8 million for 2020-21, and $4.2 million in 2021-22. Superintendent Tina Van Meer says they have been good stewards of the community’s previous support.
Gibraltar Area School District has scheduled three open houses in conjunction with other on-campus events on September 25, October 5, and October 25. They will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the high school library.
