PCSSD Millage Extension Approved in Tuesday Election

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Voters showed up to the polls Tuesday to decide whether or not to keep an existing tax to pay for upgrades to the Pulaski County Special School District. 

It appears the millage extension has the votes to pass. This will allow the PCSSD to borrow $65 million to expand Sylvan Hills High School in Sherwood to make room for 2,200 more students by 2019. 

School district board members and staff are excited about the pending upgrades. They held a watch party in Sherwood Tuesday evening as the results began to trickle in. 

The yes's outnumbered the no's by a sizeable number, with just over 2,600 voting FOR the millage extension and just over 1,300 voting AGAINST it.
