Voters in the Woodbridge School District have approved a plan to build a new high school

About 60-percent of the voters who went to the polls voted in favor of a plan to build a new high school in Sussex County’s Woodbridge School District. 
The property tax increase would raise $14.7-million toward a $52-million school billed as Woodbridge High School of Arts and Sciences.  The district said a new school was needed to alleviate overcrowding.  The focus would be on career pathways in agriculture, construction, performing and visual arts, engineering and health.  The new high school could open in 2013 or 2014.
