Voters lined up on Thursday to cast their ballots on a nearly $65 million bond to upgrade the Scarsdale School District buildings.
Some parents believe the upgrade will support education and therefore support the students.
But not everyone agrees. A few cars in the Scarsdale Middle School parking lot had "Vote No" stickers.
More than half of the proposed bond would be used for renovations and an expansion at the Green Acres Elementary School.
"The projects proposed in the 2018 bond referendum are focused on creating learning environments that support students' academic achievement and growth," the district said in a statement.
District officials say with a nearly 20 percent state aid reimbursement rate and retiring debt, they do not expect to increase taxes to pay back the bond.
The polls are open until 9 p.m.
