HOUMA, La. (AP) - The State Bond Commission has approved $38 million in bonds for the Terrebonne School Board to pay for a new Southdown Elementary School and other facility improvements.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1X8IrxI) the money will be used to pay for new schools, as well as any other proposed projects laid out in a strategic facilities plan under review by school Superintendent Philip Martin.

Officials says Southdown has been besieged over the years with significant structural issues ranging from the slab, air conditioning, plumbing, infrastructure, thinning walls and rusted pipes due to a lack of long-term upkeep.
