Missouri State Auditor Margaret Kelly has registered $36.7 million in general obligation bonds issued by Branson R-IV School District of Taney County. The statutory interest rate on the bonds is 4.56 percent.
The bonds, which voters approved last August, will be used to build a new elementary school and a new high school, and to make necessary site improvements, build additions to, furnish and equip the existing junior high school, and acquire and install technology equipment for the district's schools.
