Millburn Board of Education Gives Referendum Update; Final Push Before New School Year

MILLBURN, NJ - For the third time this summer, the Millburn Board of Education meeting took place in the Millburn High School library, as construction repairs continue on the Education Center. Heavy rain in late July affected an estimated 65% of the building and set the roof construction back two weeks. The work is now complete, but air quality testing is in progress ahead of the staff’s return to the building. Estimates look like the Board of Education will call the Millburn High School Library home until November.

The Monday meeting was the last before the 2017-2018 school year kicks off on September 5. The start of the new school year also marks the inaugural year for the Washington School. Many residents came out to hear Dr. Christine Burton's referendum update, including updates on the 5th-grade Academy.

The Washington School’s summer construction is on schedule setting it up for a successful first-day. Except for a few ceiling tiles in the main office and telephone installation, the school is ready to welcome students. New sinks and countertops were recently installed, and teachers will soon move into their respective classrooms. General cleanup and furniture deliveries will be continuing throughout the week, after the certificate of occupancy is approved.

Dr. Burton expressed confidence that all the hard work would pay off and all the last minute details were on track for completion. "We will be working through the weekend. I have got an army of people that I already solicited to help clean up and put tables together to be ready for school on Tuesday." Burton said.
