  • Circle School District will be getting a new high school in Towanda.
    Almost 60 percent of the voters in the district voted in favor of the $37.12 million bond issue. A total of 1,654 votes were in favor of the project, with 1,104 voting against it.
    The bond issue will include a new Circle High School, a renovation and expansion of Oil Hill Elementary and heating and cooling upgrades for the grade schools in Benton and Towanda.
    The new bond will mean an increase in taxes of $6.60 a month for a $100,000 home in the school district. The bond would be retired no later than 2031.
