We appreciate the voters in the community who supported our bond issue. According to the most recent count from the Hamilton Board of Elections, the bond issue failed, with 64.19% of voters against the issue and 35.81% for the issue.
Due to the age and condition of our buildings, there are immediate needs that must be addressed. Currently, we do not have the funding required to address all of these facility needs, so we will evaluate and prioritize our most significant needs first.
With the failure of the bond issue, the Northwest Board of Education will discuss the next steps to address our Master Facility Plan. As a district, we are focused on being good stewards of the taxpayer's dollars. The passage of a bond issue is critical to receive credits and additional funds from the state that make building out our facility plan the most cost-effective for the community. We will continue to communicate updates as we move forward.
