1965: Clovis voters approved a $2.3 million bond issue intended to finance school construction.

Voters approved the measure by a 6-1 margin after rejecting a similar proposal two years earlier.

The latest bond issue was for construction of 91 classrooms, a new elementary school and extension of cafeteria facilities.

The 1963 proposal had included $400,000 for athletic program construction, which was not part of the 1965 plan.
