MAPLETON, N.D. (AP) - Voters in Mapleton have rejected a $7.2 million dollar school referendum.

Principal Tim Jacobson says the measure got more than 50 percent approval but not the 60 percent majority needed for it to pass in Wednesday’s special election.

The money would have paid for a new K-8 school, replacing the district’s 91-year old facility.

Eighty-three students attend classes in Mapleton. Administrators expect enrollment to climb in coming years.
