Baldwyn Schools district voters have spoken and by a wide margin have approved passage of a $2 million bond issue.
Complete but unofficial returns this evening show the bond issue passed by about 85 percent. In order for the bond issue to be approved, at least 60 percent of voters had to give it the OK.
The revenue will primarily be spent to build a new vocational technical education building on campus at Baldwyn High School. Also included in the package was money for the purchase of new school buses to replace aging models in the district’s fleet, and renovations and expansions of various buildings on school campuses.
“We are very thankful for the support to our schools by the community and for their commitment to helping us continue to grow and improve. We want every student to have an opportunity to succeed,” Baldwyn Schools Superintendent Jason McKay said.
A complete report will be included in next week’s edition of The Baldwyn News.
