District voters approve bond referendum
November 5, 2019
Moorhead Area Public Schools residents went to the polls today in a special election and voted to approve the $110 million bond referendum. In unofficial results with all precincts reporting, the bond passed with 75.6% voter approval. The results will be official after they are canvassed by the School Board on Nov. 12.
“We are so grateful to our community for their support of our students, our staff and our schools,” said Brandon Lunak, superintendent. “This is the culmination of an extensive community-driven high school facilities planning process involving over 150 community members who worked hard to develop a plan that would best address student needs.”
The bond referendum will address high school student capacity and adequacy needs by rebuilding the Moorhead High School at the current site location and developing a career academy at the former Sam’s Club facility.
