Mount Vernon (N.Y.) district wins approval of $20 million bond

Jan. 28, 2009
Money will come from state and enable district to make facility repairs

The Mount Vernon (N.Y.) school district can proceed with repairs at many buildings after voters approved a $20 million state-funded bond proposal. The margin is vast compared with the bond's failure by just a few votes last year. The bond will be funded through the state's Expanding our Children's Education and Learning (EXCEL) program. Mount Vernon will use the money for repairs at 11 elementary schools, one middle school and all of the high schools.
