CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Canton voters will head to the polls Tuesday to decide the fate of a $33 million school bond issue.

Superintendent Ike Haynes says if the bond issue passes, he would not seek a millage increase next year.

About 16,000 voters are registered in Canton. Passage requires 60 percent in favor.

Haynes expects to see about 2,500 people at the polls Tuesday.

If passed, The Clarion-Ledger reports (https://on.thec-l.com/1aawO3d) the $33 million bond would be used to build two elementary schools and a ninth-grade academy.



In addition, the bond would fund an initiative to place laptops in the hands of each high school student within the Canton district.
