Voters in the Lower Cape May Regional school district did not approve a change to the school funding formula in the district. In total, 73 percent of voters said they didn’t want to change the funding formula to have each town pay per pupil. Currently, the schools are funded on a property value formula. This means Cape May holds more of a burden for paying taxes to support the school than Lower Township. If the towns paid per student, Lower Township taxes would go up. Another vote will take place next month that will ask voters in the district whether Cape May should be allowed to leave the school district, which would again raise school taxes in Lower Township.
