LANSING, Mich. — Voters have approved a $129.7 million dollar bond proposal for the Lansing School District.

The money will be used to rebuild Lewton School, Mt. Hope STEAM Magnet School, Sheridan Road STEM Magnet School and Willow Elementary, renovate J.W. Sexton High School and add air conditioning to all of the district's buildings.

"The Lansing School District is thrilled with the overwhelming support of this year's school bond," said Superintendent Ben Shuldiner, who is thankful for everyone's votes. "To have more than 71% of our community vote in favor of our schools shows how much Lansing cares about its students and its future."

According to Shuldiner, the goal is to create an even better school environment for students and staff. "This will mean the world to our school community," Shuldiner said. "Let's get building."

The measure passed 8,960 to 3,339, according to unofficial results.
