TULSA - The Union Public School District is asking voters to approve a bond issue to make way for expansion, improvements and technology upgrades.
District leaders are asking for $20.4 million. Most of the money will be spent on upgrades to the sixth and seventh grade center.
They will also replace the track facility at the high school.
The rest of the money will be spent on land purchases, textbooks and other school needs.
Union officials say the money is critical for keeping up with the continuing growth of the district.
Some work has already begun with the passage of last year's bond.
