This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $25.53 million in order to help pay for remodeling, equipping, furnishing, upgrading and improving school facilities as needed.[2] The main use of the money would have gone towards upgrading technology in the district, though those opposed to the measure noted that such upgrades should come from the school's general fund rather than put the school district further into debt. School officials noted though that technology should be updated to match what children learn on at home and this was the best way to accomplish that.[3]
