School Board members unofficially decided they want something built that will relieve capacity at Bentonville High School by 2016 during a meeting Thursday. Travis Riggs, board president, said that means another millage election could be before voters by fall 2013.
At A Glance
A survey sent out by the Bentonville School District earlier this year asked voters why they did or didn’t support a millage increase in June for a second high school. Resolving overcrowding was chosen by 505 of respondents as the top reason they voted for the increase. The cost of the plan was chosen by 474 respondents as the top reason they voted against the increase. More than 1,700 postcards were returned.
