Blaine school district officials will be conducting two tours of the Blaine High School science building in January in order to better inform residents about how the proposed $3 million bond initiative will be spent.

The tours will run from 8 to 9:30 a.m. on January 17 and from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on January 24. Both tours will start at the Blaine High School offices.

The majority of the $3 million bond initiative, appearing on the February 14 ballot, will be used to upgrade the high school science facilities from one lab room to to six. The remaining funds, approximately $600,000, will be used for special education, security, heating and lighting upgrades.

The bond initiative requires a super majority of 60 percent or more of the vote to pass. A $30 million bond initiative failed by less than one percent of the vote last April.
