Hundreds turn out to support override amid D-R budget crisis

NORTH DIGHTON — It was an emotional three hours for the hundreds of students, parents, teachers and other Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District staff who attended the school committee meeting on Tuesday night.

In the wake of over 100 staff layoffs and cuts to various programs as a result of an unapproved budget, concerned school community members came out in full force to hear Superintendent Anthony Azar’s budget presentation.

Azar urged Rehoboth residents to help others become informed about the July 17 Rehoboth town ballot vote for a Proposition 2½ override, which he said would be the only way to reverse the layoffs and other cuts within the district.
