This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $57.5 million in order to make the schools safer, upgrade technology and add science labs to their secondary schools. A higher amount was defeated in the November 2009 vote, so the school district was trying again with a smaller amount. Due to the economic environment, the school district decided against their more ambitious plan and will wait for the second phase of school remodeling.[2]
