Jenks Public Schools broke ground Wednesday on not one, not two, but three construction projects.

The district is building a new early childhood learning center, an education service center, and a new field house.

These are the last in a string of projects being paid for by a $157-million bond issue, voters passed in late 2008.

Jenks Superintendent, Kirby Lehman said, "We're going forward with about twenty-five years worth of projects during a four-year span of time."

The superintendent is quick to point out the bond did not raise taxes.

The three projects should be finished by September 2013.
