Broward County voters will have a big decision to make about school funding in November.

The School Board of Broward County School approved a resolution to put a bond vote on the fall ballot.

Broward schools are asking for $800 million — most of which will go towards school renovations and technology upgrades, says Superintendent Robert Runcie.

The school district has to overcome a reputation damaged by a history of mismanagement and corruption.
