Voters in the Woodside Elementary School District approved a $13.5 million bond measure in Tuesday's election.
With all seven precincts reporting, 62.9 percent of voters supported Measure D. The count was 491 yes votes and 289 no votes.
Measure D will raise about $13.5 million for the one-school district in Woodside. The district wants the funds to pay for modernization and repair projects, including replacement of Sellman Auditorium, estimated to cost $7.67 million.
The nonprofit Woodside School Foundation has launched a capital campaign to raise another $3.5 million for elements of the campus project that are considered desirable but not essential.
Measure D would tax district residents at a rate of $24.05 per $100,000 of their property's assessed value per year. This would be in addition to what property owners already pay annually for previously approved bonds: a total of $34.50 per $100,000 of assessed value for bonds passed in 1999 and 2005, according to Robin Wasco, the district's chief business official.
