The 1,995 yes votes in the April 22 special election added up to 60.9 percent approval. Bond issues must be approved by 60 percent. The 1,325 no votes added up to 39.91 percent.
The election was certified on Wednesday.
The money raised by the bond will pay for a number of projects at Lakewood High School, including major improvements to the schoolís security and access, heating, electrical and plumbing systems, and more classroom, lab and studio space to handle anticipated future growth.
The bond also will allow the district to improve parking and traffic flow around the school.
In February, the issue failed by just 32 votes.
The final tally in the Everett School Districtís bond issue, which was defeated, meanwhile, was 11,663, or 58.63 percent in favor and 8,229, or 41.37 percent, against.
It was the second time the $259 million bond issue was on the ballot. It failed in a special election on Feb. 11, as well.
The bond issue would have paid for a number of projects, including a new high school, an elementary school and a major upgrade to a middle school.
