Tulsa Bond Issue Eyes Increase in Classroom Technology

Posted: Updated:

School officials announced Tuesday morning that they are eying more computers in classrooms and security upgrades in their next bond initiative.

Tulsa Public School administrators were present at Patrick Henry Elementary to launch their campaign for the next school bond. One that is project to cost $38 million.

Tulsa Superintendent Keith Ballard told the audience that this issue is mostly centered at improving technology in the classroom. And that includes adding at least one computer for every three students in the area schools.

In addition to improvements in technology, TPS officials will allocate funds to provide increased teacher training and installing sprinkler systems in eleven buildings within the district. Those are buildings that are largely made out of wood.

Another focus of the bond would be centered around school security and upgrades to current systems. Ballard is hoping the money from the bond will be used to improve security district-wide.
