Voters in Springfield will be asked to consider a $62 million school bond measure on this November’s ballot.

The money would be used to replace a middle school and upgrade other buildings.

That includes paying for some full-day kindergarten classrooms, replacing old computers and providing Wi-Fi to district schools.

The owner of a $150,000 home would pay an extra $62 a year, if the bond passes.

Also this week, the Springfield School Board approved plans to become a self-funded health insurance provider.

Springfield will be among only about a dozen school districts in the state to provide its own benefits, joining the Portland, North Clackamas and Medford school districts.
