Edmond district seeks $36.3 million school bond

EDMOND — Voters in Edmond will decide on a $36.3 million bond issue Dec. 9.

If approved, property taxes would not increase, school officials said.

The first proposition, which is for $35.4 million, would be mostly used for new construction.

The second proposition, for $800,000, would be used to buy new buses.

Funds from the first proposition would be used to construct classroom additions at Risner, Dougherty and Sunset elementary schools.

Officials said they also plan to use $7.3 million to build a two-story addition at Edmond North High School that would expand the school’s media center and provide additional classrooms and offices.

Also, $4.3 million would be used to build an addition to Central Middle School’s media center and to renovate some of the school’s classrooms, hallways and rest rooms.

About $1 million would go toward the construction of a fence around all three district high schools and for gatehouses so officials could monitor who enters the school property.

Members of the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce have expressed support for the measure.
