Sand Springs voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved more than $32 million in school bonds.

Unofficial returns from the Oklahoma State Election Board show all precincts reporting, and more than 90 percent of those voters chose improvements to the school district.

SSPS said the passage of the bonds won’t affect property taxes.

The biggest projects on the list include a new gym and storm shelter for Angus Valley Elementary School, a new ninth-grade center and a STEM academy on the Charles Page High School campus.

The first proposition, for a long list of various building improvements and curriculum, is $31.5 million. The second, for new school buses, is $1.3 million.

Official results will be certified later this week.
