Tea Bond Issue Fails

Tea Bond Issue Fails

It appears yet another bond issue has failed in the Tea Area School District.

Voters went to the polls Tuesday to vote on a $9.9 million bond to build 14 new classrooms and a 614-seat performing arts center.

In unofficial numbers released by Tea Superintendent Jennifer Lowery 912 voters (59%) were in favor and 611 voters (40%) said no putting the district just two votes short.

Lowery issued this statement Tuesday night:

"I feel so badly for the 59% of our wonderful community that wants our schools to meet the standard of all other schools in the greater Sioux Falls area. We are the 16th largest school population in the state and our quest for facilities for our children are worthy of our efforts. The majority of our voters continue to support every initiative. The law says 60%, so we must respect the process."

The school board will canvass the vote at 6 p.m. Wednesday night.
