Voters in Sand Springs head to the polls on Tuesday to decide on two separate school bonds.
The district says it won't raise taxes.
If approved - Angus Valley Elementary School would get a brand-new gym with a storm shelter. It would also build a new ninth-grade center and a STEM academy on the Charles Page High School campus.
School officials say the century-old, ninth-grade center is the most costly building in the district for maintenance repairs.
And the classroom sizes are too small for a modern school.
“We want to get our students in a place where they're successful and ready for life outside of high school,” superintendent Sherry Durkee said.
The first proposition will cost than $31.5 million. The second, for new school buses, is $1.3 million.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

- New Ninth Grade Center and STEM Academy on Charles Page High school campus
