UPDATED at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday
Measure D is a $40.3-million bond measure on the ballot with major implications for Del Oro High School.
The measure would go toward major repairs and refurbishments that the school desperately needs, according to Principal Dan Gayaldo.
As a bond measure in California, it needed at least 55 percent support or “YES” vote to pass. As of 11:20 p.m. on election night, the bond measure received 53.72 percent support, leaving the school without funds for the major repairs and refurbishments. On Election Night, the race was close but it did not pass.
