The Alabaster Board of Education tonight voted to allow its investment bankers to raise roughly $120 million through the sale of bonds Thursday for construction of a new high school, renovations and other services for the district.

"It's an exciting day," board President Adam Moseley said in an interview after the special meeting. "We'll be able to do a lot for the children in our system, from new technology to new buildings to renovation of our existing buildings."
