SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - Educators are concerned that the state budget could take a hit, especially with federal cuts looming.
Sand Springs Superintendent Lloyd Snow is encouraging voters to give the go-ahead on a $6.2 million bond issue.
The bond would pay for textbooks, instructional supplies, new buses and building repairs. It would also pay for security improvements by adding cameras to some schools.
Snow said it is "Critically important for us to have some sense of stability in a very unstable funding environment."
If passed, the bond would not raise taxes. Instead, it would extend an existing property tax.
The superintendent wants to remind voters that this includes anyone who lives in the Sand Springs School District, not just the city of Sand Springs.
The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
