The combined operating and bond levy on last Tuesday’s ballot was turned back by a 78-22 percent margin.

On election night the Board issued a press release conceding defeat and Board President Art Jarvis said, “No one wins when our schools lose, and with the levy setback, the needs remain. As for immediate next steps, we will reflect on the vote and the needs in the district and ascertain what the community will support going forward. We have urgent facility and operating issues, but this was not the plan the voters wanted.”

If the Board decides to place a new operating or bond issue on the March 17, 2020, primary election ballot, it must be certified to, or filed with boards of elections by 4 PM on December 18.

  1. Capitol improvements Need to separate from operstioings expensives . Present as a separate bond issue for capital improvements only. It will pass that way. . A 37 year operating issue will never pass.. The Net present value of money will not support a combined operating and capital improvement issue, just saying. Jerry Barrow
