An area school district is hoping voters will head to the polls Today in support of a referendum.
Arcadia superintendent Louie Ferguson says as the school district’s enrollment has increased, so has the need for a $14 million referendum.
The elementary school and middle school building is overcrowded, so spaces that were once used for storage or offices are now being used for small group instruction.
Ferguson said some middle schoolers are also bused to the high school for part of the day.
The district tried to pass a referendums in November of 2011, and another in April of 2013, but both of them failed.
This referendum calls for a $12 million middle school wing for 5th through 8th grades that would be added on to the high school.
Plus, $2 million in improvements to the elementary school wing.
