65% vote for $68 million to upgrade buildings
Future Rosemount and Apple Valley high school students won't have to attend classes in shedlike buildings next to the schools. Voters in the 28,500-student Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan school district Tuesday overwhelmingly approved spending $68 million to replace portable classrooms with permanent ones, to add science labs to meet new state requirements and to improve security and technology district-wide.
