Fraser Public Schools and Chippewa Valley Schools were two of six Macomb County school districts that issued bond proposals to be voted on by residents May 2.

According to unofficial results, voters in nine precincts overwhelmingly approved the Fraser proposal, 58.6 percent to 41.4 percent. About 3,300 residents hit the polls.

Meanwhile, Chippewa Valley’s bond proposition — which asked residents to vote on an $89.9 million proposal to provide improvements and technology upgrades to school buildings — failed by the same margin, 58.6 percent to 41.4. Nearly 13,900 votes were cast in the district.
