LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Lawrence voters overwhelmingly approved a $92.5 million bond issue for the city's schools.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports unofficial early results showed the measure passing Tuesday with 72 percent of the vote.

About $80 million of the money will be used for upgrades and renovations to the district's 14 elementary schools and two high schools. The district will use another $6.5 million for technology upgrades and $5.7 million for expanding career and technical education programs.

The bonds will be phased in over three years and are not expected to increase taxes.
