Whether will go ahead with a $1 million plan to add classroom space to accommodate a will be answered Tuesday night.
Voters head to the polls that day to weigh in on whether they support the initiative that will add $750,000 to the school district's debt service and cost the average homeowner about $25 extra dollars annually for the next 15 years.
Board of Education President Kevin Brennan sent out a letter to the school community on Friday outlining the board's decision to move forward with the plan and the five-year process that brought them to it.
The recent elimination of the April school board elections pushed the referendum vote to March, one of the four dates open to districts for special votes, to allow for construction to be complete for a 2013 school opening, according to Brennan.
Superintendent Carolyn Kossack said at the Feb. 23 board of education meeting that if the referendum does not pass, the issue probably won't come before voters for another 5 to 10 years.
Board member Chris Smith said at that same meeting, "Its an investment in ourselves, it's an investment in our town."
Polls will be open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
