Voters in three central Iowa school districts headed to the polls Tuesday to decide if they would approve multi-million dollar bond referendums.

Results from Saydel, Van Meter and Woodward-Granger show all three districts voted to approve the referendums.

The Saydel School District voters passed the $7.9 million referendum with a 66 percent vote. The money will be used to renovate schools and improve technology.

In Van Meter 66 percent of voters also approved the $7.8 million price tag to add classrooms.

With the largest voter turnout of the three districts, 68 percent of Woodward-Granger voters said yes. Their $9.8 million bond will pay for renovations as well as build new additions.
