Faulkton Voters Approve Opt Out

Faulkton Voters Approve Opt Out

Voters have agreed to give the Faulkton School District more money.

Faulkton's Superintendent says a funding increase approved by state lawmakers this legislative session will send close to $50,000 to his district. But the school needs more.

So, voters approved an opt out worth up to $450,000 a year for five years.

Voters say they had a lot to think about when making a decision.

"Well, my biggest thing was if the money was going to a good cause and if they made the best out of the money they've had in the past,” voter David Speck said.

"Well, the kids are the future of our town, our state, our nation and we have to do what we need to do to have a good education for our children,” voter Charlotte Melius said.

60 percent of the voters approved the opt out. 40 percent voted against it.
