Despite getting millions in insurance, donations and government help, Chapman school officials say they will need a bond issue to repair school buildings damaged by a June tornado.

The district needs to rebuild its elementary and middle schools, the district office, art building and three-fourths of its high school. They were all damaged by a June 11 tornado. Chapman superintendent Tony Frieze says the school district will put a bond issue before voters in April.

Cost estimates aren't available yet, but Frieze estimated that the district would need $10 million or less for its share of the repairs.
