Broken Arrow is gearing up for a bond election. Broken Arrow schools are drumming up support for a $10-million bond election.

The vote is next Tuesday. And if it passes, it would mean 12 new classrooms for Rhoades Elementary. School officials say the money is needed for Broken Arrow schools to keep up with the town's growth. School superintendent, Dennis Shoemaker, "There's school buses, there's instructional materials, there's land for future school sites, just a variety of things that we need to continue to meet the needs of this community."

The bond will also provide $4-million to finish Centennial Middle School.
