Moore school district bond package would finance construction of new schools
The $126.46 million package is the largest proposed by the school district
If approved, the bond would mean a property tax increase of about $12 for the owner of a home valued at $100,000.
To pass, the bond issue requires approval by a supermajority, at least 60 percent of the voters.
In a smaller bond issue, voters will consider whether to approve $4.27 million for purchase of buses and security surveillance systems.
Pierce said she has gotten positive comments from school patrons about the bond proposals.
Other items that would be funded by the larger bond include:
• Conversion of space occupied by a closed indoor swimming pool at Moore High School into a practice gym
• Construction of new restrooms and a concession building for Westmoore High School athletics
• Construction of a restroom and concession building at Moore High School's baseball facility
• Construction of a practice gym on the Southmoore High School campus
• A new band room for Southmoore High School
• Roof work at Moore West Junior High School, Highland West Junior High School, Southgate Elementary School, Fairview Elementary School and the district's Administrative Service Center
• Evaluation of computer needs and acquisition of new computers for the schools that need them
• Purchase of land for future schools
