BOONTON TOWNSHIP — In preparation for the upcoming March 12 bond referendum, the Boonton Township Board of Education offers interactive opportunities for community members to familiarize themselves with the proposal.

Scheduled building tours of Rockaway Valley School will take place on February 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on February 22 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., complemented by a virtual Q&A session on Wednesday, February 28.

These tours were rescheduled due to inclement weather. For further details, including sign-up links and access to the February 28 virtual forum via Zoom, visit the homepage of the district’s bond referendum website by clicking here.

Chairs, choral risers and other items occupy hallways, locker rooms and the stage because there’s no other place to put them. A storage addition would create a designated area for furniture, deliveries and more.

Led by district leaders, the tours will highlight areas slated for improvement, addressing questions and outlining the impact of the proposed bond referendum on enhancing functionality, efficiency, and the learning environment at Rockaway Valley School.

The February 28 virtual forum will assemble district leaders, project architects, and financial advisors to delve into the specifics of the bond proposal, offering insights and addressing community inquiries. Additionally, teachers will provide perspectives on the necessary improvements. Dr. Christian Angelillo, the district’s superintendent, and Rockaway Valley School’s principal, emphasizes the importance of community understanding: “We want to help our community gain a clear understanding of the proposal and its implications for our students and entire community before polls open on March 12.”

The Boonton Township School District is seeking community support for a $15 million bond referendum to modernize facilities, enhance security, and address space and accessibility needs. Working in collaboration with architects, the district has identified projects eligible for $4.7 million in state aid, significantly reducing the financial burden.

Approval of the referendum would enable the district to undertake $15 million in improvements while minimizing the tax impact to approximately $39 a month for the average assessed home. Failure to approve the bond referendum would forfeit the state aid, necessitating the funding of essential repairs and replacements without state assistance.
