ARDMORE -- The Ardmore School District's quest to build a better school for their elementary students failed Tuesday for the third time.

Supporters needed 60 percent of the vote to be successful; they fell short with just 52 percent of voters saying yes.

So what's next for the Ardmore elementary school?

School officials say when phase one is complete, Charles Evans Elementary students will move in and their building will be demolished.

Save Our School committee members say they will continue to push to renovate the old buildings.

Board member Joann Moore won the chance to serve the district for three more years last night. She says both sides want what's best for the kids. Now they need to reach an agreement.

    Why tear down the new school if more room is needed for growth? There is going to be 28 families moving into the new housing edition on the east end of Maxwell. That "old" building should be refurbished and used to alleviate the bulging populations from the other schools.
