A bond issue of nearly $7 million would pay for renovations and improvements at Oakland-Craig Elementary School in Oakland.

The Oakland-Craig district in eastern Nebraska has put the bond measure on Tuesday's primary election ballot.

Superintendent Joe Peitzmeier told the Fremont Tribune that one class of fourth-graders and special education students, as well as two fifth- and sixth-grade classes, are housed in the junior high/high school building.

He says that creates potential safety problems for children crossing U.S. Highway 77 to go between buildings and cuts classroom time.

If voters were to approve the bond issue, the district would add about 25,000 square feet to the elementary building, mostly for classrooms.

Upgrades to the elementary building would include a new heating and cooling system.
