WESTFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — The Westfield Washington school district says it will look for support in the November election for an updated operating referendum. The district's leaders are proposing to renew their current referendum at a lower tax rate for property taxpayers within the area. If the referendum is approved by voters, the rate would go from 20 cents to 17 cents, which they say is a 15% decrease. The funds would be used to keep the current staff, maintain class sizes, keep teachers' salaries competitive, and add student programs.
