Tea Committee Working To Get School Bond Passed

April 21, 2014, 6:06 PM by Jared Ransom

Tea Committee Working To Get School Bond Passed

A nearly $10 million update to the Tea Area School District will be decided by voters once again in May, and one parent-led committee is hoping that the third time's the charm.

Yes For Tea Area Kids wants to make sure the third bond vote will be the last. 

In September, voters rejected a nearly $11 million expansion plan by just 30 votes.  In December, voters rejected a plan that would cost just over $10 million by only 14 votes.

The plan this time will cost just under $10 million. What the district wants to do is add more classrooms to the existing elementary school, build a new kindergarten through fifth grade elementary school and also add a new performing arts center to the high school.

School administrators and voters have said the performing arts center is the likely cause for the bonds being rejected in the past, but it is still part of the project being voted on coming up in May.
