PAPILLION-LA VISTA, Neb. (KMTV) - A local school district is considering a multi-million dollar bond proposal for 2018 and hopes to receive input from the community Monday night during a forum.

 

 Papillion La -Vista Community Schools told 3 News Now it needs to upgrade security at older schools, expand classrooms and purchase land for future schools.

 

The measure is $115 million dollars, according to the district.

 

Superintendent Andrew Rikli said he hopes the community will become partners.

 

"We want to see really big crowds tonight at Papillion-La Vista South High School and Wednesday at Papillion-La Vista High,” Rikli said. “I think the community needs to understand one thing above all else – that this is a draft proposal."

 

Monday’s meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at Papillion-La Vista South High.
