OKCPS students deserve the same 21st century learning facilities and opportunities as their peers in neighboring districts and last night, OKC voters showed us they feel the same way.
I am beyond elated that both of our bond propositions passed with more than 60% of voters in support. As you already know, this package will impact every OKCPS student and will be transformational for both OKCPS and Oklahoma City. I want to personally say ‘thank you’ to all of our student’s family members who voted to approve this monumental bond.
Our families can expect to see a lot of things happening in the coming months. District staff members will hold design meetings with architects, community meetings to determine what programming will be housed in new spaces and compile a comprehensive list of project timelines.
As we build out our timeline and provide the public with our bond project roadmap, transparency will be critical. I commit to providing regular updates to you and the OKC community regarding all projects that will come to light with bond dollars.
I hope that when the time comes you will engage with the district and your child’s school network to provide valuable insight as we make plans to expand programming and create new opportunities for our students.
This is a historic bond package for OKCPS and this is a moment to be celebrated. When a community comes together, great things happen.
