COVINGTON, La. (AP) - The St. Tammany Parish School Board has approved a plan that shows taxpayers how the school system would spend $135 million from a proposed bond issue.
Now, it's up to St. Tammany Parish voters to decide whether the school system should borrow those funds. The bond issue is one of three school propositions on the ballot May 4.
Under the plan approved Thursday, the school system would undertake renovations on nine campuses, costing $52.5 million; technology and security upgrades costing $20 million; classroom construction to replace modular units at six campuses for a cost of $46 million; and infrastructure repairs at four schools costing $16.5 million.
Superintendent Trey Folse tells The Times-Picayune the plan was developed with input from administrators, principals, teachers and parents.
