WOODHULL — AlWood superintendent Shannon Bumann said that if voters approve a one-cent sales tax hike on the April 9 ballot, the money would be used to make improvements in county schools.

That would include "replacement of locks on doors, cameras and buzzers for entrances, life safety work, including for the boilers and the gymnasium roof, work that is outside the regular budget," he said.

"We're (AlWood) a small player in district size, but all administrators feel the need to find new revenue in the face of state cuts happening all the time," Mr. Bumann said.

In other business, the board approved the 2013-14 school calendar, with registration on Aug. 1 and the first day of school on Aug. 14.
