Voters in the Roff school district signed off Tuesday on the district’s proposal to issue $4.42 million in bonds for a series of capital improvements.

The proposal passed on a 233-128 vote, with 64.54 percent in favor of the bond issue and 35.46 percent against, according to unofficial election results from the Oklahoma State Election board. School bond issues require a 60 percent supermajority to pass.

The school district plans to issue about $4.42 million in bonds to finance the following projects:

• Covered walkways that would extend from the elementary school to the student activities center and connect to the cafeteria and the middle school.

• Renovations to the bathrooms in the lower elementary school.

• A new concession stand and bathrooms for the softball/baseball fields.

• A new gym.

• Security equipment including cameras, monitors and buzzer systems at entrances to the main buildings.
