CHICAGO - The Milwaukee Board of School Directors late Wednesday approved a $474 million public school building plan, three-fourths of which would be financed with proceeds from general obligation bonds.

A $366 million GO bond issue is scheduled to go before the voters in February, according to Karen Salzbrenner, spokeswoman for the school system. The measure, passed by the board Wednesday, is expected to receive a rubber stamp of approval from the Milwaukee Common Council before being placed on the ballot, she said.
