Indian River’s $98 MILLION school budget passes 133-19

To the Indian River Community:

On behalf of the Board of Education and administration, thank you for your ongoing support for IRCSD’s instructional programming and services. We take great pride in how our Indian River student body, our faculty and staff, and our community have responded and grown through the academic and societal challenges of the past years…and have come forth stronger than ever.  We are truly and always will be, #WarriorStrong!

The Mission of IRCSD is to ‘provide an equitable and inclusive education where all students are empowered to realize and achieve their full potential,’ and the proposed budget forwarded that sentiment into the future.  We may face challenges as a school community, but together, we can work through any issues and continue to provide a world-class education for our students.

We could not be more proud of our school system and the people it serves. Thank you for your ongoing support!
