Waconia Voters Approve Schools Referendum by Huge Margin

Last week Waconia voters made it quite clear that they were ready to support the school district’s needs for more funds, passing the district’s proposed referendum in a landslide.

According to the Sun Patriot, the referendum was approved with 5,821 votes, or 69.35 percent of the total vote. Superintendent Pat Devine told the newspaper he was proud that the community came out in such a fashion.

“We are ecstatic about the outcome,” Devine went on to say. “Their work is being answered by the vote. We appreciate all of the support and thank the hundreds of volunteers who put in their time to help the cause. The plan obviously spoke to voters, who saw the need for it.”

The Sun Patriot said that the rise in enrollment and crowded buildings were some of the issues facing the district, and part of the district’s plans for the additional money includes building a new elementary school, turning Clearwater Middle School into a high school and turning Waconia High School into a middle school, and other facility improvements.
