  • Voters supportive of Anoka-Hennepin school measures

    "I would say with a high level of confidence that both of our questions passed," Anoka-Hennepin School District superintendent David Law said just before 9 p.m. Tuesday night.
     
    With 27 out of 32 precincts reporting in the state's largest school district, both ballot questions had about two-thirds support. The Anoka-Hennepin school district is seeking $9.5 million a year for ten years in operating money and a $249 million bond issue for facilities upgrades.
     
    "With these passing we're going to build two new elementary schools and get rid of 62 portable classrooms across our system within the next 4 years," Law said. He said funds will also go toward security upgrades and lowering class sizes.
