MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Mount Vernon City School District is seeking $108 million to repair public schools and improve educational programs, according to lohud.com.

The $108 million, which under the plan would be bonded, is likely to fund several programs through the coming five years, including full-day kindergarten at Parker Elementary School and expanded arts programs at Thornton High School, according to lohud.com.

Superintendent of Schools Kenneth Hamilton said much of the borrowed money will be reimbursed by the state, according to lohud.com.

City residents will have the opportunity to vote on the bond proposal on March 15, according to lohud.com.
