“We want to stay up-to-date and provide our children with the best possible surroundings,” he said.

The new schools should be opened by the 2014-2015 school year.

In Del City, ceremonies for projects at Epperly Heights Elementary, 3805 Del Rd., will be at 10 a.m. May 10, and Del City Elementary, 2400 Epperly Dr., at 2 p.m. May 10. Epperly Heights is being renovated and Del City Elementary will be expanded and renovated.

The growing district has about 14,600 students. More than half are enrolled in elementary schools.

The bond measure will last up to seven years and was approved by more than 80 percent of the vote in September. Every school within the district will receive some kind of improvement, renovation or security updates, Stacey Boyer said.
