Largest School District Bond Proposals, Nov. 8, 2016

Nov. 15, 2016
Billion of school construction dollars were at stake as hundreds of districts asked voters to approve borrowing.

Billions of construction dollars were on the line Nov. 8 as voters in hundreds of school districts decided the fate of construction bond proposals. Most of the largest bond requests were in California, where a statewide $9 billion school funding referendum also was on the ballot (it was approved.)

Here are the 10 largest school district bond proposals that were on the Nov. 8 ballot: seven won approval, two were rejected, and one still is too close to call. (In the Chino Valley district, votes are still being tallied; the proposal needs 55 percent approval for passage, and as of Nov. 18, with many thousands of ballots still uncounted, it had 55.09 percent of the vote.)
