School Construction Bond Too Close To Call

As of Tuesday night the Renton School District’s Proposition No. 1 had received 59.49 percent of the vote, just a hair shy of the 60-percent supermajority needed to pass.

 

As of 8 p.m. Tuesday the Renton School District’s Proposition No. 1, “Building for a Lifetime of Learning School Building Improvement” bond received 59.49 percent of the vote, just a hair shy of the 60-percent supermajority needed to pass.

The current count shows that 8,898 are for and 6,060 are against the proposition so there’s still a slight chance that the supermajority could be reached.

This is the same construction bond vote that failed by a small margin in during the February 14 election earlier this year.

More than 58 percent of voters were in favor of measure, but missed reaching the mandatory 60 percent supermajority mark by two percentage points. Two other measures — levies to fund classroom support and technology — passed with more than 60 percent of voter approval.

Mercer Island's school bond also appears to be headed for defeat.
