**OFFICIAL July 14 Special Election Results**

Official results from the July 14 special election have been issued by the Cass County Election Commission. The LPS bond issue failed to gain voter approval, with 66% voting no and 34% voting yes.

Statement from Louisville Public Schools: "We at Louisville Public Schools are grateful that Louisville voters have given their time to consider this critical investment in the future of our students and community. We look forward to continuing conversations within our proud community as we prepare to identify the next steps we must take toward a brighter future for LPS."

Louisville Public Schools has been working with a team of architects, engineers, and construction managers since 2018 to evaluate what our district needs to continue growing for the future. Information collected at meetings with members of the community and district since 2017 has showed us what we need for the district to meet its goals in the most cost-effective way.

Above and below, Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture renderings of the proposed elementary school addition. The two-story wing will house PreK-5th grades and would be built to accommodate three sections for each grade level with potential for expansion. Natural daylight and views of the surrounding natural landscape feature prominently in the design, which also includes a multipurpose gym space with an adjacent music room. A new playground is proposed to be located immediately to the left of the structure pictured above. For more information, view the slideshow presentation from the April 2020 community meeting.
