School districts may pass bond issues to fund only certain items – building construction, furniture and fixtures, textbooks, equipment, technology, land purchases, and buses. Although the ad valorem tax base in Jenks is large, allowing us to propose bond issues to fund capital improvements, these funds cannot be used to pay salaries, to hire additional staff, or to fund other operational expenses. Bond elections, the sale of bonds, and funds generated from those sales are the primary way in which capital improvement expenditures can be made. Thus, the community’s commitment to facilities, equipment, and technology ensures that the Jenks School District remains on the cutting edge in public education.
Community members, patrons, district staff members, and administrators serve on the Bond Issue Task Force to review and prioritize proposed bond issue items. The committee members identify the potential needs of the district, conduct necessary research, visit specific areas of the district, and engage in discussion prior to ranking proposed items. The list of recommendations is then presented to the Board of Education. Action is taken to further review and finalize items to be presented to the public in a bond election. Numerous stakeholders are actively involved in the process of determining the items to be placed before the public.
