Three different things were going on in the recent statewide school elections results for 2021, said Randie Stein, managing director of Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., Inc.
“On the M&O side for 2021, 23 questions, 16 of them passed, seven of them failed, and the pass percent was 70 percent. That’s right on par with what we’ve seen historically with the M&O side,” Stein said at the Arizona Association of School Business Officials bi-monthly meeting today in Glendale.
“On the DAA side, the pass percentage – 80% this year – is far exceeding that historical average of 59%,” Stein said. “On the bonds side, only six questions, and you’ll see that’s historically quite low. Only 50% of those questions passed whereas historically going back 2020 and prior, it’s an average of 84%,” Stein said.
