Cushing school officials will discuss possible bond issue

CUSHING, Okla. — Voters defeated a $41.5 million bond issue in April, but Cushing school superintendent Koln Knight said he isn’t giving up.

Knight will discuss capital improvements at a board meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Cushing Schools Administration Building.

“We just want to keep it in front of the public,’’ Knight said.

Knight said the top priority remains the construction of a middle school, as well as extensive repairs at the high school.

Knight said the newest school building in Cushing is the high school, which was built in 1976.

Knight said a bond issue probably will not be put to voters in November, but could be put on the ballot next winter.
