Question: When is the election for the school bond issue?

Answer: Voters will have their say on the USD 231 bond issue in January 2012.  They won’t, however, be asked to head to the polls. Instead, registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail. To be counted, ballots must be received at the election office no later than Jan. 31, 2012.
The  $72.7 million bond issue includes a new elementary school, a middle school, land acquisition, and other district-wide capital improvements and technology upgrades.
