Golf School District 67 in Niles and Morton Grove lost one of the referendum questions it had placed on Tuesday's ballot, and won the other.
Its school board president, Meryl Gale, said the district would come back in a future election and ask voters again to improve the tax rate increase, according to the Morton Grove Champion.

Voters approved a $7.9 million bond referendum that will allow the district to make repairs and improvements to Golf Middle School and Hynes Elementary School. District 67 signed a contract with an architect the day after the election.
However, voters turned down the district's request for a tax rate increase by a wide margin.

The district would have used the money to restore full-day kindergarten, reading and library programs and staff and other programming, and eliminate the fees it has tacked on to athletic and extra-curricular programs.
