moving EPS forward 2024 Bond Election February 13

The Edmond Public Schools Board of Education has set a Bond Election for February 13, 2024. This election is part of the district’s normal two year bond cycle for major district projects including construction, maintenance, transportation and technology needs for our nearly 26,000 students and 3,200 staff members. 

In accordance with Oklahoma law, the Bond will be separated into two propositions. The first one totals $144 million and includes the following projects:

  • Phase 1 Construction of a new Elementary School

  • Phase 1 Construction of a new Middle School

    • The Elementary & Middle Schools will be built on land the district owns at the Southeast corner of Air Depot & Covell

  • Construction of a new Freshman Academy at Edmond Santa Fe High School

  • Classroom addition at Boulevard Academy

  • Classroom addition at Scissortail Elementary

  • Renovations and improvements at several sites including Sunset Elementary, John Ross Elementary, Orvis Risner Elementary,  Charles Haskell Elementary and Clegern Elementary

  • Construction of a safe room at the Edmond Early Childhood Center

  • Construction or acquisition of a facility for the Edmond Transition Academy for special education

  • Purchase of new technology equipment

  • HVAC, roofing, flooring, lighting and playground improvements district-wide

  • School security enhancements and upgrades

  • School equipment including for instructions needs, fine arts, athletics, child nutrition, maintenance and library/media center books

  • Classroom furniture

  • Turf for baseball and softball fields at the three EPS high schools

  • Improvements to the Mitch Park Aquatic Center as part of the district’s agreement with the YMCA

The second proposition totals $3 million and includes the following projects: 

  • Purchase of new school buses

  • Purchase of new activity buses

  • Purchase of new sport utility vehicles

“As our Edmond community continues to grow, so do the needs of our district as a whole” said Edmond Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Angela Grunewald. “When Redbud Elementary opened, it was already nearing capacity. If approved by the voters, this bond will allow the district to begin construction of a second elementary school east of I-35 as well as a new middle school. Both of these buildings are needed to support our growth and keep class sizes as small as possible.”

These bond propositions include projects that will impact every one of our nearly 26,000 EPS students. “The district has worked hard to prioritize and select projects that improve and enhance every existing EPS school site” said Grunewald.

If approved by the voters, this bond is not planned to raise tax rates for any homeowner in the district. The voter registration deadline for the election is Friday, January 19th. More details on the bond proposals are available at
