WILLISTON — Voters in Williston approved a $34 million bond measure to finance a new high school for the rapidly growing school district.
In complete but unofficial results, 2,738 Williston voters, or 76 percent, supported the bond measure, with 879 voters, or 24 percent, opposing it.
The Williston Public School District plans to construct a new high school, which would allow the current high school and middle school to be renovated to house grades 5-8. The new building would relieve crowding at Williston’s elementary schools.
More than 700 Williston students attended class last year in 54 portable classrooms, and the district is projected to grow by another 1,300 students in the next five years.
