Tea Area School District Bond Election

It’s coming up fast.

The $11 million bond vote on Sept. 24, if approved, would allow the Tea Area School district to add on to its current elementary in Tea, put the first phase of a performing arts center on the middle/high school, and, probably most notably, build an elementary school on the north end of the district, south of the Sanford Wellness Center.

The last item has drawn some criticism from neighbors in the area of proposed school, many of whom say they don’t want a school there. You can read more on that here.

We’ll have full coverage of the vote and reactions from both sides after the votes have been counted on argusleader.com.
