Voters in the South Summit School District voted down a $58.6 million bond Tuesday night.  The vote was 1,167 against the bond, and 939 for the bond.   School officials said the bond was needed to build a new high school and accommodate growth in the Kamas-based district.   If it had passed, the bond would have added $96 in taxes a year per $100,000 value of a home in the district.  School Superintendent Shad Sorenson told KPCW in October that if the bond failed, the district would have to consider portable classrooms or year-round schools. 

Officials of the South Summit School District know that there's some opposition in the Kamas Valley to their proposed $58 million school bond. They won't know how much opposition until election day, November 7th. However, the school district has secured an important endorsement. Rick Brough has more.
