Many Windham voters in attendance were shocked to hear a wave of ballot items knocked down on Tuesday night.
Voters not only nixed a $31 million bond item for a new school and a corresponding turf field, but also warrant articles for a teacher contract and the operating budget.
This is the second straight year that voters nixed many money items on the school ballot.
A total of 3,744 residents cast ballots in total.
Also catching some by surprise was the school board seat lost by Dr. Bruce Anderson, a three-term member of the board who served the district during the adoption of Windham's first high school.
See below for the complete school results.
