The Ashland school district seeks more than $34 million for updates
School officials in Ashland are seeking $34.36 million for updates and repairs in schools across the district.
The schools were built in the 1970’s and has maintained its structure fairly well.
The money would go towards more natural lighting, larger learning spaces and a new field house.
The field house would be a 60,000 square foot space where students and community members can go to be active.
The field house would have a track and four multi-purpose courts.
Keith Hiltz, the District Administrator, said “This is not a referendum to improve things that have not been maintained. This is a referendum to really invest in the school and community to improve education, not just maintain.”
If the referendum passes, tax payers can expect to be about $10 more a month.
