LAFAYETTE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Voters in Lafayette County approved a Lafayette County School District bond by an 82.9 percent margin.

The Oxford Eagle reports "8.4 percent of the ballots were against the bond, with approximately 1,568 votes cast in total." 

Money from the $23 million will go to some needed improvements, but much of the money will fund the construction of a new elementary school in the district. 

School officials say Lafayette County has seen recent student growth of about 2.5 percent.
