The ballot measure known as Classrooms for Kids received overwhelming support early in Tuesday night’s primary election, according to early votes logged online by the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund.

The league posted early voting numbers by 9 p.m. Tuesday showing 61 percent in favor of the measure and 39 percent opposed.

The measure needs 55 percent approval to pass.

Sulphur Springs School District is the latest Santa Clarita Valley school district to ask local voters to support a bond measure. Measure CK, known as Classrooms for Kids, is a $72 million bond measure that will come before Canyon Country voters in today’s election.

The money would be used to benefit all nine Canyon Country elementary schools, including the district office and support offices.

Among the key projects would the modernization of aging classrooms, the installation of new technology for students and building repairs.

Measure CK garnered the opposition of a Canyon Country man who objects to the bond measure financing and says the bond

measure would be expensive for Canyon Country taxpayers.

The bond measure needs 55 percent of support to pass and would require the school district to establish an independent citizens oversight committee and issue annual reports so that the public can monitor spending.
