This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $4 million, adding a millage rate of 1.3 mills to the current tax rate, which will go towards technology buying and upgrading in the school district. Proponents of the measure noted that the outdated technology does not help students prepare for college or potential jobs.[2] Obtaining new computers, SmartBoards in classrooms, wireless internet and expanding computer labs in the district was the main drive of a three year plan since this measure got approved. Informational meetings were held to help educate residents about the needs of technology and the benefits the bond money would be to the school district.[3]
