Bartlesville voters passed a $19 million school bond package Tuesday night.

Proposition 1, which focused on construction, passed with 70 percent of the vote. Proposition 2 also passed with about 70 percent; it will focus on transportation.

The $19.4 million would be spread out over five years, district leaders say that's about an extra dime a day for the average family.

A big chunk of the $19 million, about a quarter of it, would go to maintenance; about $2 million would be spent on replacing 15 decades-old school buses.
