TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- The Topeka Public School District has delayed a decision on putting a $90 million bond issue to a vote.
USD 501 spokesperson Ron Harbaugh tells 13 news that the school board learned there is no urgency to take action by November, as first thought.
The district is considering a plan to improve security and technology and build a new elementary school. However, it also would mean closing Avondale West and Shaner Elementary Schools and Capital City School.
Harbaugh says the delay gives board members time to get more feedback from district patrons and explore any other options.
He said he does not know a new timetable yet for finalizing the bond decision.
