West Fargo Public Schools representatives make last minute push for voters to approve $133M school bond referendum

(Fargo, ND) -- Representatives for West Fargo Public Schools are making a last minute plea, asking residents in the city to vote "yes" Tuesday on a school bond referendum. 

"We're also the fastest growing school district, historically have been adding anywhere between you know, 4, 5 or 6 hundred students any given year. Those students need space," said the the district's business manager Levi Bachmeier. 

Bachmeier and Superintendent Beth Slette have been promoting the $133 million dollar school bond for months. 

If approved, Bachmeier says the money would be used in part to build a new elementary school and to pay for additions to existing campuses across the district. 

In 2018, voters in the district passed a $106.9 million dollar bond referendum. 

All residents of the West Fargo School District are eligible to vote in the special election including all residents of West Fargo, Horace, Harwood, Reile's Acres, and parts of Fargo. There will be six locations where voters may cast their vote:
