Superintendent Mark Witty and members of the Baker School Board are on a mission.

They hope to hear from voters who represent the opinions of the 4,744 people who opposed the District’s $48 million bond measure on the Nov. 6 ballot, and then use what they hear to go back to those same voters with a plan the naysayers would support.

That was the consensus after a discussion of the topic Wednesday as part of a day-long work session at the District Office.

Had the measure passed, the bond money would have been paired with a $4 million state matching grant to build a new elementary school and to make other improvements throughout the District. To obtain that grant a second time, which Witty said would be a possibility, the District would have to seek approval of another bond in a November election.

On Nov. 6, voters rejected the proposed measure, with 4,747 voting no and 2,199 voting yes.
