School bond measures in Douglas County get approval from voters
Douglas County voters approved three school bond measures, according to preliminary election results released Tuesday evening by the Douglas County Clerk’s Office.
At 8:30 p.m., the Winston-Dillard School District measure was winning by more than 66%.
Winston-Dillard School District asked for $16 million for safety, security and facility improvement from taxpayers. The school district will receive a $4 million grant from the state to help with improvements at Douglas High School.
“We couldn’t be happier,” said Jeremy Mitchell, treasurer of the Yes for Douglas High Political Action Committee. Mitchell pointed out the work students had been doing, knocking on doors, making calls, to get voters informed about the measure.
