St. Cloud area voters will be going to the polls again this fall to decide on whether to build a new Tech High School and upgrade Apollo High School. The special election ballot will have two questions.
Funds for a new Tech High School and for updates to Apollo High School will likely return to the ballot for St. Cloud area voters this November. On Thursday, Superintendent Willie Jett proposed a roughly $138 referendum to bring to the ballot this fall.
The St. Cloud area school board heard feedback on why a recent referendum failed, summarized from recent community listening sessions. The $167 million November referendum, which included money for a new Tech and updates to Apollo High School, failed with 53% voting against and 47% voting yes.
Lacrosse in St. Cloud schools may become a fully funded district activity on Thursday night. The school board is expected to approve funding for the sport, which would cost them roughly $50,000 a year.
