Update on Indiana School Referenda. Education Policy Brief. Volume 8, Number 5

As noted in "School Referenda in Indiana", the contributing factors to school referenda outcomes are often subject to the individual communities; while a referendum with a high requested tax rate increase might fail in one community, the same referendum might pass in another. Despite this factor, there often are notable trends and factors which seem to apply to most referenda in a given election. For instance, in the May 2010 primary election, referenda generally passed when the leaders of school corporations clearly and openly communicated with their communities; the greater the effort to communicate with the community, the more probable a referendum victory was. However, not all referendum ballot trends that seemed apparent through May 2010 held true in November 2010. This update on Indiana school referenda will continue the examination of factors which contribute to the success or failure of school referenda, as well as provide a comprehensive look at the results of school referenda which took place during the November 2010 general election.
