Norman, Mid-Del voting on multi-million dollar school safety bonds today
Folks in the Norman and Mid-Del school districts will face the bitter cold to head to their voting stations today.
Norman residents will be deciding on the most expensive bond issue in that district’s history, adding up to $126 million.
The proposal includes school renovations, safety and security improvements and technology and athletics.
In the Mid-Del district residents will be voting for or against a $10 million bond proposal to keep their schools safe, secure and smart.
This includes safer entry ways, security cameras, fencing and an additional saferoom at Parkview Elementary, bringing the district to four saferooms total.
Another proposition will be for buses in hopes to retire some of the older ones in use now.
