Concord We're increasingly seeing the impact of referenda passed in May's elections, sending more funding to schools.

Some Concord Community School students will be riding new buses
Concord's referendum means higher property taxes, but more money going to schools.

The school corporation will purchase three buses for about $329,000. They'll replace some that have been in use for more than 15 years.

That’s includes two regular buses, seating 84 students each, and one special needs bus for 54 students.

The new vehicles will arrive this fall.

According to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth , money will also be used to maintain class sizes and improve school buildings.
