Seaford School District residents will be going to the polls next week on February 27 to vote on a property tax increase to help pay for programs created by the federal Race to the Top program.

The district says the average property owner would see their tax go up by around a hundred dollars.

WBOC reports that Interim Superintendent Dr. Kevin Carson says the additional funds will assist in paying for increased staffing, Spanish immersion programs and the International Baccalaureate program.
