Unofficially Dickinson says no to new school bonding

Tuesday was election day in Dickinson. The question: should property owners allow bonding for a new high school and a new elementary school? The results: yes — 2,076; no — 2,703. School bonding votes need 60% approval to be successful. Whether Dickinson builds new schools isn’t really a Minot topic, but voters appetite for additional local debt and property taxes are.

Minot future includes a school capacity challenge. We simply don’t have enough classroom space for our younger classes as they head to middle school and high school. What will our solution be? Minot’s school board has yet to offer a path forward, but the question, but votes like the one in Dickinson illustrate the larger challenges in the region.
