School bond and tax votes

See also: School bond and tax elections in Connecticut

In Connecticut, the voters of a school district must approve the district's budget on a annual basis. Connecticut is like New Jersey in which they are the only two states in the nation to require school district budgets to be approved by voters. If the referendum is defeated, then the school board must approve a new budget within a time frame mandated by Connecticut law. Also, voters in a municipality can approve bond issues for private academies recognized by the Connecticut Department of Education. If an academy defaults on its bond obligations, then all aid payments are withheld until the default is cured. Also, Connecticut requires state approval for public school bonding and capital projects, but do not require voter approval.
