El Paso - El Paso-Gridley school district officials aren't certain what the future holds since a one percent sales tax proposal passed in Livingston County but failed in Woodford County on Tuesday.
If both had passed, the district could have gotten an additional $250,000 per year.
"We're very pleased with the results of Livingston County, but beyond that we're just taking care of business here in the EPG Unit 11 School District," said Superintendent Mike Lindy.
Lindy said he can't focus on an issue that didn't pass and is instead focusing his attention on the declining state funding.
"I'm trying to stay appraised of all the new programs that the legislature is passing without funding. We're also working on the normal day-to-day issues so we have a couple things on our plate," he said.
The district is hoping to upgrade its aging schools, but had put that plan on hold because of cost and state funding uncertainty.
