The $29.9 million facilities referendum failed by a 65 to 35 percent margin in the Muskego-Norway School District in balloting today.
With 3,424 "no" votes against 1,849 "yes" votes, the referendum failed by an even larger margin in today's special election than the original $34 million referendum that was voted down last November.
Turnout was about 29 percent of registered voters.
School Board President Jim Schaefer said, "We respect the community's vote."
The elementary schools still have needs, though, and the School Board will meet to discuss where to go from here, Schaefer said. That discussion will likely start Nov. 21.
