LEBANON - Technology would be upgraded in the Lebanon Schools over five years with proceeds from a permanent improvement levy that voters will be asked to renew Nov. 4.
The 2-mill levy brings about $1.1 million annually and is used to maintain buildings and upgrade technology.
Superintendent James W. "Bill" Sears said his staff is developing a five-year spending plan for the money. It should be ready within months.
During the first year the district would use the money to air-condition buildings.
A plan is being developed to repair or replace roofs on older schools.
In 2004, the district will open a new high school and elementary school on Drake Road.
Window replacements at Berry Middle and other schools will also be in the plan along with resurfacing and electrical upgrades.
