The school system's plan for the borrowed funds calls for $46 million in classroom construction to replace modular units in place since 1996 and 1997 on six campuses: Fontainebleau Junior High, Lyon Elementary, Madisonville Elementary, Mandeville Elementary, Pontchartrain Elementary and Tchefuncte Middle.
Another $20 million is earmarked for improvements to security and technology, in part to meet new requirements from the state.
