The Bartlesville School Board held a meeting Wednesday afternoon to discuss the possible bond coming up later this year.
Superintendent Chuck McCauley led the discussion and told everybody in attendance the bond is expected to cost around $15 million. McCauley said of that $15 million, he expects 25 percent of the money to go toward technology upgrades, 22 percent to maintenance work and 16 percent to facility upgrades. McCauley also wants people to know that residents will not see their property taxes go up if the bond passes.
McCauley hopes part of the bond will include a new press box for the football field, as research shows Bartlesville has the most outdated press box in Class 6A. Because of its age, the band is unable to hold contests on the field.
McCauley hopes to present the final plan to the board during May’s school board meeting and hold a vote the second Tuesday of August. It takes 60 percent majority to pass a bond issue.
The next meeting to learn more about the bond will take place April 24. You can also go to bpspresents.org to learn more.
