Voters Across Indiana Approve More School Funding


Every one of the 12 school funding measures on the primary ballot passed this week.

Anderson Community Schools had two measures on the line, for school operations and construction. Both passed with around 60 percent of voter approval.

Goshen Community Schools also had two measures up for consideration, but the margin of victory was a bit closer – both passed with a little more than 50 percent of the vote.

Smith-Green Community Schools needed support in both Whitley and Noble County for it’s lone construction measure, and prevailed.

Meanwhile Alexandria and North West Allen County schools received approval for their school construction projects, and referenda for school operations in Avon, Oregon-Davis and MSD Warren Township schools passed.

And in Lake County, Crown Point Schools easily won approval to renew an existing school funding measure, while voters narrowly approved Lake Central’s new property tax increase for a levy of its own.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misstated the number of referenda up for consideration, and failed to include Oregon-Davis School Corporation. It has been updated.
