Voters in the Arlington School District are rejecting the district’s $96 million bond proposal that was on the Feb. 12 Special Election Ballot.

The Arlington School District Proposition 1, Bonds to Construct and Renovate School Facilities and Improve Security, received 3,423 (51.58%) “Approved” votes and 3,213 (48.42%) “Rejected” votes. The bond requires a 60 percent approval to pass.

The proposition would have authorized the District to: construct a new middle school to replace Post Middle School; make District-wide security and safety improvements; expand and renovate Arlington High School; and make District-wide health, educational and infrastructure improvements.
