District asks for funds for new Dover High

The Capital School District is trying again to get state permission to build a new Dover High School. The school board voted Wednesday to seek a certificate of necessity from the State Board of Education. Two previous applications have been rejected because of a lack of state funds.

The new school would cost a projected $129 million, and the district would ask district taxpayers to approve $15 million in local funding.

District business manager Sean Sokolowski says voter approval would raise local tax rates no more than 37.5 cents per $100 of assessed property value.
