Some School Districts Victorious At The Polls Tuesday
Voters denied an almost $24 million measure in Arcadia Tuesday...money that would have gone to replace an elementary school that is almost 100 years old. The measure was voted down by a 741-546 margin.
The Independence School District narrowly passed a school operating referendum Tuesday, the result was 252 yes votes to 232 no votes. The referendum allows the district to exceed state revenue limits by $250 thousand a year for five years. This is the second vote on the measure in less then 9 months....as it was voted down in February.
It was all smiles in Caledonia Tuesday as voters there approved renewing a $725 per student levy and approved of a one day bond sale. Voters approved the school’s levy 669-178. The bond sale was also approved, 700-144.
Other Minnesota school districts that walked away victorious Tuesday were Lewiston-Altura.......Plainview-Elgin-Millville.......and Mabel-Canton.
