CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - A $3.4 million school bond issue planned in Carlsbad would be used to upgrade technology at the district's 14 schools and education centers.
District officials say if it is approved by the Carlsbad Municipal School board at a special meeting Tuesday they'd used the bond money for computer hardware and software and upgrades to the district's phone systems.
Superintendent Gary Perkowski tells the Current-Argus (http://bit.ly/NuBi6L ) that the district is replacing an existing bond with a higher interest rate so taxpayers should not see a tax increase.
Perkowski says there's no money is the regular school budget to pay for the technology upgrades because of state budget cuts.
