Cass Lake-Bena School District Regroups After Referendum Fails


November 9, 2017

The results of Tuesday’s election will send the Cass Lake-Bena School District back to the drawing board. Voters overwhelmingly voted down a $37.8 million referendum that would have built a new intermediate elementary school for grades 3-5 and renovate its current building for pre-k through second grade. For the district, the results come as a complete surprise.

The vote failed by a wide margin of 442 votes to 144. Now, the school district is left to re-evaluate its plans and how to maintain its current structure and programs.
