OLATHE, Kan. — People who live in the Olathe School District will be asked to consider a bond issue to pay for a variety of needs in that growing district.

There will be a mail-in bond election in June for a $156-million plan.

The district says it needs the money to secure land and pay to build a tenth middle school in the district.  It would also renovate existing schools to accommodate growth and upgrade some technology.

Part of the money would also enhance safety and security in all district schools.

The $156-million bond issue will not increase the district’s mill rate for property taxes.

Ballots will be due June 7th.
