Fergus Falls School District regroups after failed bond measure – InForum

FERGUSL FALL, Minn. – A proposal for a new elementary school specifically for third through fifth grades failed to gain the necessary support for approval following the school bond elections on Tuesday, May 14.

The unofficial results of the elections:

The plan was to create a 102,000-square-foot elementary school instead of putting money into the McKinley and Adams elementary schools that were both built in 1939. The plan would also entail an annual tax increase.

“We understand and respect the decision the community has made regarding the school bond measure,” Superintendent Jeff Drake said in a news release sent after the vote. “Although the proposal has not been approved this time, we will continue to work hard to ensure that our students receive a high-quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.”
