The head of the Fort School Board said a lengthy, private evaluation of Superintendent Erin Slater could soon be completed. But it remains to be seen when the board might consider a possible contract extension for Dr. Slater.

The Fort Madison School Board voted Wednesday night to table a possible extension of Superintendent Erin Slater's contract. President Tim Wondra said the board needed more time to evaluate Slater's performance.

It appears students involved in the "senior prank" at Fort Madison High School one week ago will be able to participate in graduation after all. That's according to a post on the district’s Facebook page.

A majority of the people who cast a ballot in the Fort Madison School District's special election on Tuesday supported the $27-million bond referendum. But it was not enough to make the project a reality.

The bond referendum received nearly 56% of the vote. 60% was needed to pass the bond referendum.

The money would have been used to build a new Pre-K - 3rd grade building to replace Lincoln and Richardson Elementaries.

Bond Referendum

Yes - 1517

No - 1210
