The Evangeline Parish School District paid only $1,461 to hold a failed bond election in October 2007, not the $31,000 that superintendent Toni Hamilton originally said the election cost.

Hamilton told the school board last week that she had incorrectly reported the amount that the district paid the state for an earlier parish-wide school tax renewal election. The district paid less for the fall election because it split the costs with other local governments and the state, Hamilton said.
