The Caledonia School District will have its $495,000 one day bond after the majority of taxpayers voted in favor of the request Nov. 5. The money will be withheld from a payment on the middle school/high school building and help pay for technology, building and grounds needs and curriculum. Although a favorable outcome for the school, only 365 voters took the time to find their way to the polls.
