Supporters for the school bond issue gathered Tuesday evening at Rookies to await the election results.

For the first time in 43 years, the stars aligned to the point that a majority of voters felt confident in approving funds to build a new school for District 257.

The $25.5 million bond was the linchpin to approval of two smaller issues: A new $7 million science and technology center at the high school and $2.8 million for a new heating and cooling system at the middle school.

That district voters approved the whole enchilada speaks volumes about their support for our public schools and their confidence in the future of our communities.
