A presentation about the Appoquinimink School District's upcoming referendum will be given at the Middletown town meeting Feb. 4.
The referendum will be going to vote Feb. 28.
In November, the Appoquinimink Board of Education approved the district's two-part referendum, which addresses the more than $4 million in state funding cuts suffered by the district.
If passed, school taxes for the average homeowner will increase $18.96 per month in 2014, and continue to increase in steps until 2017.
The first part of the referendum is a necessity, said Superintendent Matthew Burrows. If it doesn't pass, there will be significant staffing cuts on all levels, larger class sizes, and less programs and opportunities for students.
The Mayor and Council of Middletown will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Town Hall Council Chambers at 19 West Green St.
