ANCHORAGE - The Anchorage School Board is considering whether to ask voters to fund one phase of a multimillion-dollar program to modernize every public school in the city.
The board is set to take a vote Monday on the $97 million phase.
The proposal would include renovating Service High School, advancing plans to redo Girdwood's elementary school and footing the costs of maintenance upgrades at various schools.
Funds would come from selling bonds that would be repaid over the next 20 years by property owners and the state.
The upgrade effort has been under way for some years and is partly behind a doubling of total School District debt in the past decade.
