Minot voters approve building a new school
MINOT — Voters here have approved a $39.5 million bond referendum to ease crowding at Minot’s elementary schools.
In complete but unofficial results, 3,977 voters said yes while 1,962 voted against the bond. It required 60 percent approval.
Minot Public Schools has 7,430 students enrolled, with 475 attending class in makeshift, temporary classrooms, Superin- tendent Mark Vollmer wrote in a letter explaining the district’s proposal.
An election in December for a $125 million bond for new and remodeled schools in Minot did not pass. The district then proposed the $39.5 million bond to address immediate crowding at elementary schools, but it does not address future growth at middle school and high school levels.
