Corbett schools bond failing in early results

It appears voters have once again soundly rejected a bond measure for Corbett schools.

In early election results, 39.41 percent of voters said “yes” to the bond, while 60.59 percent said “no.”

After a bond proposal was soundly trounced in November 2013, the Corbett School District Board of Directors went back to voters with a $9.415 million bond request this month.

Board members voted 4-1 in March to place the bond on the May election ballot.

The trimmed-down bond would have replaced the 90-year-old middle school and make seismic, fire protection and energy upgrades to the cafeteria, gym and high school.

The vote on the bond comes amid a year in which district personnel were called into ethical question and which has seen heated debate over its leadership, charter school, AP philosophy and alleged lack of communication with the community.
