Voters passed a measure to expand Hamilton Southeastern and Fishers High Schools with a 67.87 percent vote Tuesday.

The measure is to fund a $95 million construction project to expand the high schools.

Once finished, the schools would be able to accommodate 1,000 more students each.

The alternative, according to school officials, would have been to spend $125 million on a new, third high school.

Hamilton Southeastern Schools said the tax bill on a home valued at $195,000 would not see a tax increase, due to old debt coming off the books.  A home valued at $230,000 or more would see an increase.
