The Rockford School District will ask voters on the November ballot to approve new borrowing to support a $311 million, 10-year capital program needed to upgrade aging schools.

The district wants to undertake more than $200 million worth of projects over the first five years of the program, including school additions, upgrades and land acquisition.

The upcoming referendum marks the largest ever sought by the Illinois school district, which is located about 90 miles northwest of Chicago.
