CHAPMAN, Kan. (AP) _ Chapman voters can decide this week to approve a bond issue to fund the rebuilding of three public schools damaged or destroyed in a tornado last year.

Residents in the school district can vote on Tuesday to approve an $8.2 million bond for the northeast Kansas town.

Students go to modular classrooms that were installed last summer to keep the school year on track after the June 11 twister that killed one woman.

The bond would help build a new elementary school and education center and repair and rebuild the middle and high schools.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is providing about $41.1 million of the $75.1 million cost.

Superintendent Tony Frieze says the state will add another $5.4 million and a floating insurance policy should add another $20.3 million.
