On Tuesday, February 12 Tulsa County voters are being asked to decide school board posts in  Broken Arrow, Liberty and Berryhill School Districts.

Voters will also vote on school bonds for Jenks and Union School Districts. The bond issues don't raise property taxes because school districts pay off existing bonds as new ones are added, officials said.

Voters in Jenks will be asked to approve an $11.5 million bond issue for the purchase of textbooks, school buses, classroom renovations, safety equipment and more.
