Mandan School District voters approve bond referendum for pair of new schools
MANDAN, N.D. – Voters in Mandan approved an $84 million bond request April 13 to build a new elementary and high school.
Unofficial election results show 77% of the 3,277 voters cast a “yes” ballot.
The district will use $9.6 million in COVID relief funds to reduce the amount of bonds issued.
“Really excited for Mandan. I think this is something that our community has been, they’ve known it’s been a need for a long time. I think when you factored in the federal dollars that we’re getting, they just felt the time was right, " MPS superintendent Mike Bitz.
The referendum will fund a new high school designed to serve 1400 students at a location yet to be determined, and a new elementary school in the Lakewood area.
Ballots will be canvassed at the next board meeting on April 19.
