Technology Surfaces Again in Twin Cities School Referendums

October 13, 2000

It’s a mantra for schools that want more tax money to get wired for the Internet, buy computers, streamline records and speed up communications between teachers and parents.

It will come up for many Twin Cities voters next month. Several of the 14 metro-area school districts holding referendums are asking for technology money, along with funds for small classes, new schools and building renovation, and early-childhood education. Districts seeking technology money include St. Paul, Bloomington and Centennial.
