Election 2016 Results: Education Referenda

Article origination IPBS-RJC

Eight school districts posed 10 different referenda questions on ballots around the state, asking voters to increase property taxes to help fund local schools.

There are two types of referenda questions: construction and tax levys. Construction referenda seek money to fund a specific project like a school renovation. If a tax levy referendum passes, the money goes into the district’s general fund and helps pay for teachers, utilities and any other expenses.

We’ll have more information later in the night as more results come in.
