Lee County schools expecting big changes
The votes are in and the polls show the majority of voters in Lee County approve of the bond referendum that was on the ballots.
This referendum is for the school system to take out general obligation bonds for various projects system-wide. Dr. Lawrence Walters, the superintendent, says he estimates the total cost of all the projects to be around eleven million dollars.
FOX 31 went to Lee County High School where a lot of these projects are happening and spoke to the principal, Kevin Dowling. Dowling says at LCHS they're expecting technology upgrades, turf for their football field, a drama workshop, and a new multipurpose facility that will house more classrooms and locker rooms for athletes.
Both Walter and Dowling are excited about every aspect of these projects but both said they're really happy about the technology upgrades. They both agreed they're long overdue.
