TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Public Schools officials told FOX23 that they feel confident ahead of Tuesday's bond election, despite low voter turnout Tuesday.
Voters will decide whether to approve a $415 million bond.
The last TPS bond election was in May 2013, when 10 percent of eligible voters came to the polls. That bond passed by 66 percent.
As long as the weather holds up, the district hopes for a high voter turnout.
"(It's just for) all the kids. They need all the help they can get," said Sharon Price, who has grandchildren in the district.
Price said she plans to vote in favor of the package.
"Because I will support anything that is educational. I mean, we need to just support our schools," she said.
For the past several weeks, the school district has campaigned heavily on TV and social media to appeal to voters.
The district said the bond package will improve school facilities, security and technology over the next five to six years.
