Bismarck Residents Might Vote on New Schools

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Bismarck will be getting a new high school and two new elementary schools if voters approve an $81 million bond issue.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Bismarck will be getting a new high school and two new elementary schools if voters approve an $81 million bond issue.

The school board this week unanimously approved the projects. Consultants propose a bond issue vote in late summer. If voters were to approve, the elementaries would be ready by the start of the 2013 school year, and the high school would be done by fall 2014 at the earliest.

Officials say the new schools would help with anticipated enrollment growth and overcrowding.
