Lake Washington School District bond failing at 51.99 percent
According to the King County Elections website at 4:30 p.m. tonight, the second round of results show that the Lake Washington School District Proposition No. 1 bond's approval percentage is 51.99 with a 48.01 rejection percentage.
To pass, the bond needs a 60 percent "yes" vote and a minimum turnout of 18,503.
The $404 million bond would fund the construction of three new elementary schools, two in Redmond and one in Kirkland; a new middle school; a new westside STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) focused school on the Juanita High School (JHS) campus; the rebuild of JHS; and an addition to Lake Washington High School. The bond would also leave some funds for future capital projects.
The next round of results will be posted by 4:30 p.m. tomorrow.
Results will be certified on May 6.
