Updated 6:45 p.m. Nov. 3 – Seven of the 11 bond issues proposed by 10 Colorado schools districts apparently have been approved by voters.
A bond issue in the growing Falcon district failed, while proposals in Poudre and Peyton passed.
Eight districts, including Peyton, proposed bonds specifically to match state Building Excellent Schools Today grants. Proposals passed in Center, Holly, Mapleton and Salida but failed in Elbert, Florence and Peyton.
Akron was designated previously as an alternate if other districts failed to raise their matches, and the district passed its bond, putting it in line for BEST money. The BEST board meets next week to decide what to do in the wake of Tuesday’s election.
