(ABC 6 News) -- Voters have passed a referendum for the Hayfield Community Schools district.
The bond referendum passed Monday night will give $10 million for a lot of elementary remodeling and internal fixtures like the high school boilers. Another $4.3 million will go toward security renovations. Nearly $10 million dollars had already been received through Quality Zone Academy Bonds--which will be interest-free over the next 20 years.
“No doubt, we’re excited about the outcome, mostly for our students and for our future students. We also feel fortunate and happy for the support we have from/with our families, staff, and communities," said Hayfield Superintendent Gregg Slaathaug, via a Facebook post. “There are real needs that were identified and brought forward — safety and security, aging facilities, classroom space, and quality classroom learning environments — that are now going to be addressed."
At this point, there's no word on exact numbers from Monday's referendum vote.
