    The bond will build a new elementary school, add three new tornado shelters and bring facility upgrades across the district.

    A ninth elementary school with an EF-5 tornado shelter would be built west of Highway 169 and north of 116th Street North.

    Owasso Mid High and Smith Elementary will also get storm shelters. There are plans to build a science wing at Mid-High School.

    The bond would also replace old school buses, textbooks, classroom and library materials.

    The district says the money is needed to deal with an increasing student body that shows no signs of slowing down.
