Ada, MN -- The Ada-Borup School District was successful in its first attempt at passing a $9 million dollar building referendum on Tuesday night, albeit by a slim margin. The referendum passed by just 12 votes. Ada-Borup Superintendent Aaron Cook had a feeling it might be close, but says the board and administration put in a lot of work to make sure it was successful.
Now that the building referendum was approved, Superintendent Cook talks about the process moving forward.
The overall cost of the project is actually just shy of $10 million, with a school safety grant and district contributions tallying about a million dollars. Included in the project is a renovated preschool area, multipurpose gymnasium addition, elementary classroom addition, new Elementary and High School office area, as well as other safety and security items.
