On March 18, the District 65 School Board approved the issuance of $15 million in bonds. The proceeds will be used to refund $2.7 million in bonds issued in 2009 at a lower interest rate, pay for work at Haven and Nichols middle schools totaling $8.3 million, and pay for other building projects and expenses in the amount of $2.7 million.

The remaining funds may be used for other building projects and technology to be discussed at Board meetings in April. For more information, see article in the March 14 issue of the RoundTable.
