Voter approval Tuesday of the Brea Olinda Unified School District bond measure has several districts hoping that history will repeat itself--again and again.
At least four other Orange County school districts plan to ask voters for millions of dollars in November.
Even while residents within the Brea Olinda district were voting Tuesday, school officials around the county were considering their own measures.
Huntington Beach was the first to make it official, with board members voting 4 to 1 Tuesday night to put a $123-million school bond measure on the Nov. 2 ballot.
Santa Ana appears poised to ask residents for $164 million, and Capistrano probably will seek $65 million. Anaheim city school officials also intend to seek a bond soon, but they haven't settled on a dollar figure.
In Irvine, officials are mulling their financing options and will decide June 21 whether to seek voter approval of a parcel tax. The district is $2.5 million over budget this year, and Irvine must quickly boost its funding or cut school programs.
