Burbank Unified school board members have decided to hold off on putting a $110-million bond measure on the November ballot, preferring instead to bring it to voters sometime in the spring to ensure a better turnout.
The bond extension would need 55% voter approval. It would be used to upgrade classrooms and fire alarms, and add irrigation lines for reclaimed water and new technology at schools districtwide. It would also be used to improve roofs, plumbing, air conditioning, asphalt and fences at school sites.
With the Nov. 6 election off the table, the school board has several ballot options for the spring.
For the Record, Aug. 7: An earlier version of this story incorrectly referred to the election as occurring on Nov. 2.
