majority in favor of two new schools

BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) – You need more than 60% of the vote to pass in North Dakota. As the Williston Area School District prepares for spring this spring, the board released a survey to see how the community feels about it.

836 people responded to the survey. Of those responses, about 65% say they at least somewhat support the construction of two new elementary schools.

Premier Richard Faidley said he was pleased with the results and optimistic to see the bond passed.

“They understand that we need a lot of capacity and our primary schools. They are supportive of trying to solve this problem,” Faidley said.

The survey also found that the top priorities are for the board to communicate its plans and mitigate any potential tax increases.
