Rockwood School District voters not only rejected a $38.4 million bond issue Tuesday, but they also ousted two longtime board members after much controversy and criticism.
Challengers Loralee Mondl and Jeffrey Morrell drew roughly twice as many votes as the incumbents, School Board President Janet Strate and member Steve Banton.
The bond measure, which required a four-sevenths majority for passage, would have provided for renovations, security measures and other updates.

The first of more than 30 defendants expected to surrender Tuesday in Atlanta's school cheating scandal has turned herself in to authorities.
Fulton County Jail records show that Tameka Goodson was in custody early Tuesday after being booked into jail on charges of racketeering and making false statements and writings. Goodson was an instructional coach at Kennedy Middle School.
35 educators within the Atlanta school system, including former Superintendent Beverly Hall, were named in a 65-count indictment last week that alleges a broad conspiracy to cheat, conceal cheating and retaliate against whistleblowers in an effort to bolster student test scores and, as a result, receive bonuses for improved student performance.
Prosecutors set a Tuesday deadline for all defendants to surrender to authorities.
