(Fargo, ND) -- West Fargo Public Schools Superintendent Beth Slette is asking residents in the city to vote "yes" for the $133 million school bond referendum.
"As far as the why, it really comes down to the growth in the district, the past growth of four to six hundred learners per year, and the continued growth into the future of three to six hundred learners per year. With that number of students, we need to have places for those students," said Slette.
Slette says during the last bond referendum in 2018, the district only asked for funding sufficient to accommodate growth for a 5 year period.
She says funding from a new referendum, if approved, would be used for building new schools and for expanding or improving existing buildings.
Citizens will vote on the referendum September 26th.
