Standard & Poor's Corp. upgraded the outstanding debt for the Columbus City School District as it plans to sell $200 million of bonds in the second week of April 2003. The issue planned is the first of a $392 million bond authorization approved by voters in November. In about three years, the district plans to ask voters to authorize an additional $800 million of bonds to finance the remainder of the capital improvement plan, Standard & Poor's analysts Richard Marino and Eden Perry wrote in a news release.
