JENKS, Okla. (AP) - Some school board members of an expanding Tulsa suburb are expressing hesitancy to approving a $112 million bond issue that district leaders are proposing to take to voters in February.

Some board members questioned this week whether it’s the right time for all the proposed projects. Some of the projects include additional classrooms, a new press box at Hunter-Dwelley Stadium, expansion of a cafeteria, parking improvements and an agricultural research facility.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/1z3nbtv ) school officials say more than half the proposed amount - $64 million - would go toward classroom space at the elementary and intermediate levels.

If the district sends the package to voters in February, the board would have to approve it at its December meeting.
