A Shelby School District Bond Measure was on the August 3, 2010 ballot in the Shelby school district which is in Richland County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 2,176 (53.02%)Approveda
  • NO 1,928 (46.98%)[1]

This measure tried again to pass a bond that failed in May. The bond will be in the amount of $28 million and would be used to help with construction projects in the district. Community members had funded this election, a check was given to the county board of education to hold this special election.[2] The plan will be to move the current middle school from its location, on a flood plain, in order to avoid future flooding that could occur. Cracks and mildew plauge the school now and school officials saw this as the only way to ensure a safe environment for students. The current levy maintains the buildings but is not enough to help with new construction.[3]
