    WAGONER, Okla. - Wagoner residents decided not to pass a $30,990,000 school bond on a special election ballot Tuesday.

    Only 1260 people voted, and 50.32 percent voted in favor of the bond, while 49.68 percent of voters voted against it.

    The bond needed a super majority of 60 percent to pass.

    The bond would have added classrooms to current pre-K building, built a new, two-story elementary school with a gym and tornado safe room for first, second and third graders and replaced concrete bleachers.

    Central Elementary School, which was built in 1965, would have been shut down. The school is currently right behind the county courthouse and jail.

    The Wagoner Public Schools superintendent plans to conduct a community survey before proposing another bond project next year.
