The St. Martin Parish School Board has approved a May special election for a more than $40 million bond issue that would finance various school upgrades and renovations. Superintendent Richard Lavergne says the list of school needs won't be approved by the board until March, but he says some of the issues being discussed are, among other things, heating and air conditioning, roofs, and educational technology. Lavergne adds the bonds will not increase taxes and may, in fact, cause millages to decrease.
