By Hear Dr. Ballard's Speech:


Tulsa, OK – Voters in the Tulsa School District will be asked to decide the fate of a 354-million dollar bond issue on March 2nd. Tulsa School Board President Doctor Keith Ballard says the majority of the funding will be used for facility upkeep. 97% of Tulsa school facilities are 30-year-old or older.

As the new bonds would replace retiring bonds, there would be no tax increase.

Money would also be used for technology, safety and security, libraries, buses, fine arts and physical education.
