Jenks, Union residents to decide on school bond elections Tuesday
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
Voters in the Jenks and Union school districts will take up important school bond elections Tuesday.
Union Public Schools is asking voters to approve a $128.6 million, five-year series bond issue. The money would help pay for the completion of Ellen Ochoa Elementary School, a fine arts addition at Union High School, structural renovations for Tuttle Stadium, and an expansion to the district's STEM program. The district also wants to use the money to roll out a program to provide high school students with 24/7 access to laptop computers.
The district says passing the propositions on the ballot will not raise taxes above traditional levels. You can read more about the proposals here.
Jenks Public Schools also has two bond proposals on the ballot Tuesday. The proposals total $14 million and would be used for facility, technology and safety improvements across all JPS schools and grade levels, according to the district.
