Ardmore school bond in voters' hands today

ARDMORE - Today is Election Day in Oklahoma, where the big issue of where to put hundreds of elementary school children has divided the city of Ardmore.

The Ardmore school district is asking voters to approve a $13 million bond issue today to finish a project near the old Charles Evans Elementary.

They have already started phase one, which was approved by voters. But unless they get the rest of the money necessary, only a portion of Ardmore’s elementary kids will get to use that new facility. The rest will stay in the old rundown buildings of Lincoln, Franklin, and Jefferson.

Opponents say they would rather see those old schools renovated and keep their kids in their home neighborhoods.

KXII and will have results from today’s election later today.

    if people voted "no" on the school bond, they must be stupid and not care about the future. Give the children what they need in order for them to have a bright future.
