NEWFIELD, N.J. (AP) - A vote in Newfield could have an impact in other Gloucester County school towns.

By a 235-52 vote, Newfield voters on Tuesday defeated a referendum to increase taxes to raise nearly $564,000 to pay to send its students to schools in neighboring districts.

School Board president John Paladino tells The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill (https://on.cpsj.com/1RwraI5 ) Delsea Regional and Franklin Township school districts are not going to get paid to take Newfield’s 520 students.

Delsea business administrator Joseph Collins says the district would have to make cuts to offset the loss of funding. Collins says the cuts would be steered away from the curriculum.

But funding might be restored. Newfield will appeal the referendum results to the state Education Department.
