The Lauderdale County school board has approved a $6,250,000 loan for renovations throughout the district.

The money will fall under the three mill levy already allotted to the school system and should not cause a noticeable tax increase, according to officials.

Superintendent David Little said expansions and updates will help to improve the quality of education for your children.

"We're having class in modular buildings, portable buildings, and it's just not an environment as conducive to learning as if you had some good permanent classrooms," said Little.

Little says when school resumes after spring break, the district will begin advertising to fill two openings: for principal at Southeast Elementary and for assistant principal at Northeast Middle School.
