Selah Schools: "Bond Failed Because of Bad Economy"

SELAH -- KIMA continues to follow the defeat of Selah's school bond.

51 percent of voters supported the measure.

That was six percent off from the last vote in February.

It needed a 60 percent super-majority to pass.

The district believes fewer people supported the bond, because money keeps getting tighter for many families.

Despite the defeat, the Selah school district says it will try again.

It hopes to put another bond on the ballot sometime next year.
