TIOGA, N.D. (AP) - Voters in the north Dakota city of Tioga go to the polls Thursday to decide whether to approve a $9.9 million bond issue for school construction projects.

Superintendent D'wayne Johnston tells the Minot Daily News that the bond would initially pay for construction of a new cafeteria and kitchens and three new classrooms at Central Elementary.

Johnston says enrollment there has grown from 110 students to 275 students in just four years, and the district is temporarily using a 10-classroom modular school building.

For phase two, it would pay for construction of five new classrooms, one music room and relocation of the administration and main offices. Phase three would involve construction of additional cafeteria and kitchen space at Tioga High School.

The bond issue requires 60 percent approval.
