PR residents to vote on $10 million school bond [UPDATED]Published 9:47am Friday, October 26, 2012 Updated 11:51am Friday, October 26, 2012
The Pelican Rapids School Board will seek voter approval for a bond referendum in March for improvements and expansion of the existing high school building, according to The Press in Pelican Rapids.Shadow
The board is seeking about $10 million for a physical education addition; replacement of the fine arts auditorium built in 1927; and renovation of the commons area.
With the defeat of the 2005 referendum to build a new school at a cost of $33 million, a task force was established which sought community input for a plan that would be more likely to succeed.
According to Supt. Deb Wanek, details and total costs are “very preliminary.”
