TULSA, Okla. — A virtual session will be held this week before a vote on a huge bond proposal for Tulsa Public Schools in June.
The 2021 Bond for Tulsa Public Schools is a proposed $414 million investment.
According to the TPS website, the bond proposal would:
- Ensure that every child learns in a safe, secure, healthy, and accessible environment;
- Expand access to programs that prepare every student to succeed in college and careers;
- Strengthen science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programming in all schools;
- Nurture the whole child with investments in fine arts, athletics, physical education, wellness, and purposeful play; and
- Provide state-of-the-art educational technology for every student and every teacher.
“We’re not only investing in the college-bound kids. We’re investing in kids that are going to go straight into the workforce,” said Edison Principal Clay Vinyard. “The funding that we get, the things that we provide for our kids, is all relative to what kind of citizen we’re producing and putting out into Tulsa. Investing in us gives those kids an opportunity to have their best chance at success whatever that means to them.”
A virtual information session will be held on Tuesday, May 18th and Thursday, May 20th from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m.
