TPS Pushes For Bond Issue Approval
Tulsa Public Schools and its allies are advocating a vote of yes on an upcoming bond issue.
The initiative is worth $38 million, and would go to technology and safety concerns.
Specifically, TPS would like to ensure each school has at least one computer for every three students. Superintendent Dr. Keith Ballard says that’s an intermediary goal for the district, which he says would like to have a one-to-one computer per student ratio in the coming years.
The money would also provide sprinkler systems in 11 school buildings, as well as upgrade security systems district-wide.
The bond issue will be on the May 14 ballot.
