FWSU district voters approve $36.5M school bond
FAIRFAX, Vt. (WCAX) - Franklin West Supervisory Union voters Tuesday approved a $36.5 million school bond to make repairs to BFA-Fairfax. It was the fourth time residents have voted on the issue.
The measure passed by 946 to 880, a 66 vote margin. Money from the bond will be used to create nine new classrooms, improve the office and building safety, install a new sprinkler system, and improve science classrooms.
Voters in November approved the measure by 33 votes, but some residents petitioned for a revote, saying they didn’t know they had to request a special ballot.
The school serves residents of Fairfax, Fletcher, and Georgia.
