DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) - Dodge City voters easily approved an $85.6 million bond issue to expand the city’s schools.

Preliminary results show the issue passed with about 67 percent of the vote. The mailed ballots were due back to the county clerk’s office on Thursday.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1LJzgdq ) projects tentatively approved include 24 new classrooms and more learning spaces in some elementary schools. The middle school could get a new gym and a sixth grade wing, while the high school plans include a new academic wing with 27 classrooms and four career and technical education classrooms.

Enhanced storm safety and security also are planned.

The growing school district currently uses more than 15 modular buildings and the high school exceeded capacity by nearly 400 students this fall.
