$92 million bond fails in Bonneville School District 93

Bonneville Joint School District 93’s bond failed Tuesday night, with only 44.54% in favor.

The $92 million bond included a new high school, middle school and district improvements. For the bond to pass, the district needed 66 2/3 percent of patrons to vote in favor. In 24 precincts, 2,719 voted in favor and 3,578 voted against the bond.

District 93 Superintendent Chuck Shackett said he is disappointed, but proud of the parent group, school board and administration that put the bond together.

“It’s a culmination of about five years at work,” said Shackett. “We’ve looked at every opportunity to provide to our students, and we put out to the community what they asked us to.”

Despite the failed bond, Shackett said there are positives.

“A couple of thousand more people came out to vote than ever before, so that means our community is really engaged in this,” said Shackett.

So, with enrollment growing rapidly, where does the district go from here?

“We just have to take the time now, and figure out how we can house all these students with the resources that we have,” said Shackett.
