OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Leaders in the Oklahoma City Public School District have been hard at work selecting potential projects that would be completed if a bond was passed by voters.
Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel says a bond would pay for projects that all students could enjoy, while also paying for much-needed new construction of some schools.
Overview projects include adding STEAM and Innovation spaces to schools, a new Film Production and Studio Arts academy, as well as expanding mechanics programs.
The proposal also includes new construction of some schools that would open for the 2026-2027 school year.

Now that the list of projects have been selected, the Oklahoma City Public Schools Board of Education will have to approve the plan.
After that, the board will publicly call for an election and set an election date.
At this point, the district hopes to have the bond on the November ballot.
