school facilities

School board members okayed a spending plan Tuesday for a proposed facilities bond, though the board may ultimately decide not to place the bond on the ballot in November.

The board voted 3-2 to approve a new bond spending plan that would see the school district spending about $85 million on its two main high schools – half of what board members originally considered – and the rest on middle and high schools. The plan board members originally considered would have the district spending almost all of the $179.5 million it could seek on modernizing its two main high schools.
