    The Columbia Board of Education has called a special election for Tuesday, April 7 (which has now been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 2). The $20,000,000 no-tax-increase bond issue would allow for renovations at Jefferson Middle School, expansion of an elementary school, high school activity field projects, safety and security projects, accessibility projects, roofs and other critical facility needs, and technology infrastructure. 
    The bond issue proposal involved the work of the Columbia Board of Education, including two Board committees, the Finance Committee and the Long-range Facilities Planning Committee.
