OWASSO, Oklahoma -

Owasso Public Schools is inviting the public to ask questions and learn more about an upcoming bond proposal. The district is hopeful the nearly $84 million bond will be decided on April’s election day.

The final elements have not been decided or approved by the school board, according to a district spokesperson. Tuesday evening’s meeting offers community members the chance to learn about the district’s needs and give input on some of the proposals.

The district says some money would be allocated towards infrastructure, including roof repairs at some school sites. Improvements to the track are also in the plan, including the construction of a new stadium, concessions and storage areas.

The track is used by students and also community members outside of school hours, according to the district. Money for instructional equipment, band uniforms and upgrades to the Performing Arts Center is also a part of the current plan.

School leaders say the meetings are a good way for voters to learn about how bonds and school finances work. The forum is scheduled for Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. inside the Owasso High School’s PAC.
