Bond Issue 2016

Forging Ahead
$27-Million Bond Issue - VOTE Tuesday, February 9

Passage WILL NOT increase taxes above traditional levels!

The merging of four small school districts in 1919 forged Union Public Schools—now considered a premier Oklahoma district, which is nationally recognized for outstanding Early Childhood Education, Community Schools, STEM initiatives and College/Career readiness. On Tuesday, February 9, voters are asked to continue to invest in Union’s students and the district’s excellence—to forge ahead with projects to accommodate growth and provide the facilities, school buses, equipment and technology our students could not have without successful school bond elections.
