St. Vrain Valley's $260.3 million bond issue was passing easily, with 59 percent voting yes to 41 percent voting no, based on preliminary results from Boulder, Weld, Larimer and Broomfield counties.
"You've got to give credit to an entire community that came together and once again said education matters," said St. Vrain Valley Superintendent Don Haddad. "The only thing I can say is a big thank you."
Central students got to experience voting today. Issues on the ballot were: Best School Lunch, Best Central Activity, and should Central have a School Flag? A lot of excitement was generated about these "ballot issues" today! Will the school pizza, chicken nuggets or crispito be the favorite lunch? Will the Firehawk Dash, Halloween Parade or the Holiday Sing-A-Long be the winning favorite activity? Stay tuned to find out if students think that Central should have a school flag!
