(TULSA, Okla.) Tulsa Public Schools is reminding Tulsans to vote in the 2021 Bond for Tulsa Public Schools election on Tuesday, June 8. The proposed 2021 Bond will invest in Tulsa children, teachers, and families and make an impact on every child in every school. The proposed 2021 bond package will not increase tax rates for Tulsans. Polls will be open Tuesday, June 8 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tulsans can visit www.tulsaschools.org/vote for voter resources.

The proposed 2021 Bond package includes:

·  Improving access to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs district-wide;

·  Increasing college- and career-readiness programming to prepare all students for college, careers, and life;

·  Expanding building accessibility for all Tulsans with ADA-accessible building improvements; and

·  Investing in educational and instructional technology for every student and every teacher at every school.

“I encourage all Tulsans to get out and vote on Tuesday!” said Superintendent Deborah Gist. “Every student and every school in our district will benefit from the investments in the 2021 Bond for Tulsa Public School. Great schools are the heart of thriving communities and cities. Young people are our future workforce, homeowners, and taxpayers, and our schools prepare these young leaders to be successful in college, careers, and life. When a community invests in its schools, it is investing in a stronger, brighter future for all Tulsans. ”
