They were seeking 9.87 million to upgrade deteriorating schools and it lost.
School Superintendent Stephanie Garber says it was a tough defeat.
"Of course it's very disappointing, but there was also some good things that happened. Our neighboring districts had low voter turnout and we had wonderful voter participation. I'm encouraged by that and I'm encouraged that it was only defeated by 60 votes."
Last November, the district requested a higher bond, 14.5 million and that proposal was rejected nearly two to one.
Garber plans to go out for another bond request this November, probably for a lower amount.
