Voters passed the bond referendum that will expand and improve Rutherford Public Schools to meet the needs of rising enrollment, current education standards, and aging facilities. Thank you!
With this approval, we can strengthen the school district that is already recognized for academic success, and already a key partner in this desirable community. This One Rutherford proposal blended many perspectives into one solution focused on our future.
Unofficial tallies from Tuesday, September 24 are 1536 votes in favor and 899 votes opposed for the $45.3 million borrowing plan. Vote By Mail ballots that were postmarked by that date will be counted in the next two days, and final results will be available from the Bergen County Clerk’s Office.
We want to thank the entire Rutherford community for supporting our schools and students. We’re excited to begin the process of putting these improvements in motion!
