Jefferson City voters approved two measures that will significantly change the future of public education in the community. Proposition J and Proposition C both passed, which will lead to the construction of a new high school to address the overcrowding at Jefferson City High School. Prop J approved $130 million in spending, paid for by an increase to the tax levy for the school. Prop C was another levy increase to pay for the maintenance of the school and other district costs.
