BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck’s school district will ask voters next year to approve a $57.5 million bond issue to increase and renovate middle school and high school space.

The School Board voted this week to hold an election on March 7, after public information sessions in January. If the bond issue is approved, construction would start in the spring.

Under the proposal, three middle schools would get additions, and two high schools would get additions and remodeling. The goal is to keep up with rising school enrollments.

The bond issue is not expected to increase property taxes, since other bonds are being retired in coming years.
