Unofficial results are in, and voters in the Blue Valley School District have approved a $271 million bond issue.

According to the Johnson County Election Office, about 62 percent voted “yes,” and about 38 percent voted “no.”

Out of more than 74,000 registered voters, almost 29,000 submitted ballots.

District administrators plan to use proceeds from the bond sales to fund an early childhood education center, improvements in existing school buildings, a professional development center and technology upgrades.

Yesterday was the voting deadline. The election office finished counting the ballots and announced the unofficial results this afternoon.
