West Slope school bond passes

Greg Risling

A $27 million school bond measure in Rescue passed easily Tuesday.

Voters overwhelmingly supported Measure K, which will upgrade aging schools for the Rescue Union School District. Unofficial results of all 18 precincts report that 75.4 percent of voters approved the measure.

The school district incorporates parts of El Dorado Hills, Shingle Springs, Cameron Park and Rescue.

Enrollment has shot up during recent years, due to the migration of new residents to the Sierra foothills. District officials estimate that since 1985 there are nearly 1,700 new students.

Some improvements scheduled include a new sewer system at Rescue School and modernizing classrooms that are more than 30 years old.
