The proposed bond also addresses technology updates and would purchase equipment to bring classrooms up to date, including digital projection units, teacher workstations and tablets and wireless Internet.

Updates to athletic facilities, as well as new competition and practice baseball and softball fields, would also be covered.

According to estimates received by the board, the bond, if passed, would cost the taxpayer $131.75 annually, or $10.98 per month, based on a $100,000 property value.

“The district and the community have grown significantly since the last bond election,” Hanks said, referring to a bond proposal in 1999. “This proposed bond would address many issues in the four critical areas.”

Early voting begins April 29.
