ELKHART — Voters living in the Elkhart Community Schools district apparently have again rejected a school tax hike that school officials said was needed to help offset lack of funds from the state.

The unofficial count shows that the referendum failed with 3,766 voting “no” to 2,075 voting “yes” for the proposed tax increase that would have brought property taxes to 38.5 cents per $100 of assessed valuation.
