Three school districts in Canyon County re-ran bonds and levies that previously ran back in March hoping for a different outcome. 

In Middleton, unofficial results showed a 28 million dollar bond did not reach the super majority that was needed to pass. The "yes" votes-1,398, made up 59.04 percent of the vote. The "no" votes, 40.96 percent, voted against the bond. That bond money would have gone to build a new elementary school. 

In Parma, voters approved a 5 million dollar bond for improvements to the football stadium, high school band room, and a new science classroom. The "yes" votes made up 72.77 percent and the "no" votes had 27.23 percent of the vote. 

And the Wilder School District was asking for a five million dollar bond for a new science facility, lunchroom, and kitchen. Unofficial results showing that that bond failed, with the "yes" votes making up only 39.22 percent and the "no" votes making up 60.78 percent.
