Board to talk school bond



Mark Twain Union Elementary School District wants to put a $9.6 million bond issue on the March ballot.

But it has no policy on general-obligation bonds.

So trustees will conduct the first and second reading of a new board policy and administrative regulation at their meeting tomorrow night, and then discuss getting the measure on the general election and presidential primary ballot next spring.

If 55 percent of voters approve the measure, the district could issue and sell up to $9.6 million worth of bonds to pay for school improvements, including a new gym at Mark Twain Elementary School in Angels Camp, a new elementary/middle school in Copperopolis and a district warehouse and maintenance building.

According to board documents, if voters approve the general-obligation bond, the district will qualify for state matching funds of up to $9,800,000.

The board will also discuss sixth-grade science camp and the ski program for seventh- and eighth-graders.
