Additional Information on the Municipal Referendum:  Do you favor a plan for the Cape Elizabeth School Department to join the Greater Sebago Education Alliance Regional Service Center through an interlocal agreement that will allow the School Department to receive additional revenue through the state funding formula and to more efficiently procure goods and services?

On August 13th, the Town Council voted unanimously to include the current Municipal Referendum on the November 6th ballot, pending School Board approval.  On August 28th, the School Board voted unanimously to approve participating in an inter-local agreement with the Greater Sebago Education Alliance Regional Service Center.  Per state Statutory Section 3805(3) of Title 20-A, voter approval is required in order to confirm the joining of an inter-local alliance.

The Municipal Referendum, if approved by voters, positions Cape Elizabeth Schools to join the Greater Sebago Education Alliance  which seeks to avail the state's Regional Service Initiative.  This new state incentive offers additional state funding for school districts who work together to improve efficiencies and leverage purchasing power by working collaboratively. If the approved, the Municipal Referendum would secure an additional  $22,121.40 in state subsidies for FY19 for Cape Elizabeth schools.  In the following year, the state has promised  an additional increased subsidy estimated for Cape Elizabeth to be $46,000.
