Britton said the bond issue, if approved, will raise property taxes for district residents by $1.67 per month on $100,000 in property value.

The Rose State district includes the Midwest City Del City School District and portions of the Choctaw and Oklahoma City school districts.

Administrators for the Cushing School District are asking voters to support nearly $40 million in bonds, which they said is critical to continuing the district's transition away from traditional middle schools and into “grade centers.”

If the bond package is approved, the district would open up a new center for fifth through eighth grades, and move students from elementary schools slated for closure into the current middle school, said Superintendent Koln Knight.

The bonding package would also finance renovations to the high school and renovations to the elementary schools that will continue to be used.

If approved, the bond issue would cost district taxpayers $19.91 for every $100 in current taxes, Knight said.

Other races to watch include sales tax propositions in Enid and Newkirk and a bond issues at Kremlin-Hillsdale Public Schools.
