• Equipping and re-equipping school buildings for technology equipment and systems; • Erecting, equipping and furnishing a new elementary school building and additions to school buildings; • Remodeling, equipping, re-equipping, furnishing and re-furnishing school buildings, athletic fields, playgrounds and other facilities and the purchase of school buses; and • Preparing, developing and improving sites at school buildings, athletic fields and playgrounds and the construction of an athletic field support building?
