GUTHRIE, Okla. – School leaders in Guthrie are asking residents to vote for a bond that would improve schools across the district.

On Tuesday, voters will head to the polls to decide whether to approve or deny a $16.2 million bond for Guthrie Public Schools.

The district is asking for the funds to renovate Central Elementary School, Fogarty Elementary School, Guthrie Upper Elementary School, Guthrie Jr. High School and Guthrie High School.

Officials say repairs need to be made to the roofs, HVAC units and windows.

The money would be used to construct a new elementary school near the intersection of Douglas and Charter Oak

Also, teachers hope the bond is approved so they can purchase classroom technology equipment like computers and software.

If approved, the bond would be paid by increasing property taxes on residents.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
