BIGFORK, Mont. (AP) - Bigfork School District voters have overwhelmingly approved a $14 million renovation of the high school.

Unofficial results Friday showed that 1,810 favored the bond issue and 955 opposed it in the mail-ballot election.

The high school is 50 years old and has no space for its rising enrollment.

School administrators had failed to gain voter approval for renovating the high school twice in the last decade.

The renovation project includes eight new classrooms, four locker rooms, a gym expansion and library relocation. The building will also be brought up to fire and safety codes.
