Two more area school districts have won voter approval for building plans.

Over 60-percent of the voters who went to the polls in the Kasson-Mantorville and Stewartville School Districts cast ballots in favor of bond issues on Tuesday. The Kasson-Mantorville school system can now proceed with a nearly $40-million dollar plan to expand and upgrade the district's elementary and high school facilities, while voters in the Stewartville School District authorized a nearly $25-million dollar proposal to construct a new elementary school for 3rd through 5th grade students.

Over the past few weeks, four school bond issues have been approved by voters in the Rochester area.  The Pine Island School District won approval for a new elementary facility and other improvements costing close to $40-million dollars, while the Dover-Eyota School District is moving ahead with projects that carry a price tag of around $9-million dollars.
