Guthrie residents were asked for for the funds to renovate three elementary schools and the junior high and high schools.

Officials say repairs need to be made to the roofs, HVAC units and windows.

The money would also be used to construct a whole new elementary school and provide money for things like purchasing classroom technology in the district.

The bond will likely be paid by increasing property taxes on residents.
