Voters Want School District to Dissolve

Good for them. It’s good to see the citizens being good stewards of their resources and focusing on what’s best for the kids.

The majority of voters in the Palmyra-Eagle Area School District would like to see the district dissolve.

Of the 2,298 votes cast in the Nov. 5 advisory referendum, 1,218 (53%) voted in favor of dissolution; 1,080 voted against it, according to unofficial results released Tuesday night by the school district.

The results of the referendum will be made official on Thursday, Nov. 7, PEASD District Administrator Steven Bloom said.

The nonbinding vote comes seven months after 61% of voters rejected an $11.5 million operational referendum that district officials said was necessary to keep the district afloat.
