Clover voters went to the polls Saturday to vote on what was the biggest bond the school district has ever asked for – at just under $197 million.
The referendum was voted down by a margin of 70 to 30. The intent of the referendum was to pay for three new schools – one elementary, middle and high school. The bond would’ve set aside about $24 million to make renovations at Bethany Elementary and Clover High schools. In a statement by Clover Superintendent Sheila Quinn, she says the heart of the community remains strongly behind the supporting great schools. She adds that the leadership of the district will take the time to listen and get busy planning the next steps. The statement also says that the district wants a collaborative approach for the future of the schools. For the full statement by Dr.Quinn, see below:
