BOKCHITO, Okla. (KTEN) — Bokchito voters will soon be asked to approve a hit the polls to vote on a $2.8 million bond proposal for Rock Creek Public Schools.

If approved, the district plans on using the funds to:

  • renovate first through third grade classrooms
  • building a library media center
  • creating a safer driveway into the elementary campus from U.S. 70

Voters rejected similar bonds in both 2017 and 2019.

Rock Creek Superintendent Rob Frederick said the 2022 proposal prepares the district for what's to come.

"It will allow us to have capabilities to have bond money that we can always tap into in the future to grow as this area continues to grow," he said. "Not only that,  these projects that we are doing now will help maintain safety for our students."

If voters do approve the school bond, it will raise property taxes 15.5 percent. The election is on April 5.
