ANDREWS - Andrews residents passed a $33 million bond for the school district this past weekend but how will the district be using those bonds.

The Andrews ISD Superintendent tells NewsWest 9, the bonds will be split up into three phases.

The first phase should be ready to go by September of this year and will cover costs for the next three years with $13 million being issued.

The second phase will be available in 2015 and the third in 2019, each being 10 million apiece.

The money from the bonds will go towards improving technology throughout the district for students and teachers.

Money will also be spent replacing some of their buses and vehicles.

Also included are general improvements for roofs, air conditioning repairs and some renovations.

Meetings will take place before the bonds are issued.

The community is encouraged to attend.
