Voters resoundingly approved the 2012 Tech Bond Tuesday night.  Election results showed 70.35 percent voting for the bond and 29.65 percent voting against.

Ann Arbor Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Patricia Green was pleased with the results. “You take a world-class curriculum, with gifted and inspiring teachers, and use technology in their hands as a tool, and the combination of all that can create that ‘aha’ moment for a child,” she said. “What we have is a world-class curriculum, and now we will have much better opportunity to make it come to full life for our kids.”

The bond allows for $45.8 million to be spent in three phases over ten years. The bond provide new computers and student devices, improved wireless capability, renovations to schools to sustain the new technology, and faster internet delivery.
