Calling it a matter of continued progress and future safety for students, officials from the Climax Springs School District are hoping that a bond issue appearing on the November ballot will be passed. Superintendent Nathan Barb says, for years, there has been a general mistrust of the district when it comes to finances.

District patrons will decide the ballot issue on November 8th.
