Voters will decide whether to approve a referendum to provide funding for a building project for the district after the school board approved a resolution to issue general obligation school building bonds and calling for the special election earlier this month.

According to the resolution, the amount of money would not exceed $14.5 million and would go toward "the betterment of school sites and facilities."

The plan for the Evansville school includes the addition of more classrooms, a parent drop-off area and new parking lots.

In Brandon, the plan includes a new gym, career and technical shop and community fitness room additions, as well as new parking lots and a storage shed.

A "yes" vote on the ballot question would result in a property tax increase.

A previous $25.2 million referendum failed in November 2019.
