OKLAHOMA CITY - With school back in session, many district officials say more needs to be done to keep classes running smoothly.

On Tuesday, the Oklahoma City Public School Board will be discussing a proposed bond to help aging schools in the district.

The bond, which would be for $106 million, would provide funds for the purpose of improving schools around the district and fixing equipment that is in need of a repair.

In recent weeks, parents have been upset after learning that air conditioning systems across the district in certain classrooms were not working.

Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Aurora Lora says the bond would not raise taxes, saying that existing tax money would be used.

"This is not going to raise taxes at all. We are just asking people to support the taxes so they can go towards fixing our buildings," Lora told KFOR on Monday.

The school board meeting will be held at 12 p.m. on Tuesday.

If it is approved, voters will have their say on Nov. 8.
