Moore School District to Vote on Bond Issue (Jan 30, 2013)

MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Residents in the Moore Public School District will be asked next month to approve $126.4 million bond issue to build three new schools.

If passed, it would be the largest bond issue in district history. The election is set for Feb. 12.

The bond issue calls for the construction of two elementary schools and one junior high school. The Norman Transcript reports the five-year bond issue will also pay for transportation equipment, band facilities, roofing projects and land acquisitions, among other projects. If approved, taxpayers would pay an extra $12 per year for every $100,000 in home value.

With about 23,000 students, the Moore district is the third largest in the state. Officials say the district has seen nearly 2,000 new enrollments in the past five years.
